Company[edit]

In rodent diets, standardized research methods will reduce the fluctuation in study results. Envigo's Teklad business unit provides both high-fat and control diets mostly used in the research of impact of obesity and nutrition on decease states like diabetes, cancer and heart disease.[5]

Three of Envigo’s breeding sites have been accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International Council including Horst, the Netherlands (March 29, 2016),[6] Bresso, Italy, and Wyton, United Kingdom (July 19, 2016).[7]
