Contract Breeding Services

Harlan Laboratories has performed Contract Breeding Services – rederivation, embyro cryopreservation, sperm-freezing, revitalization, genotyping, contract breeding & maintenance, and speed congenics – for many years. Originally developed to support our internal breeding operations, we began providing these services to customers. Experience gained through these customer engagements and our continuous investment in capabilities, facilities, and personnel, have enabled us to refine and formalize a comprehensive set of contract breeding service offerings.
