Health Surveillance

DVR supports centralized animal health surveillance programs by monitoring all NIH animal colonies for infectious disease and pathogenic entities. The program includes necropsy, pathology, bacteriology, parasitology, serology, and virology, to monitor the health status of animals or animal specimens submitted for evaluation. In addition, DVR provides a microbiological monitoring service to evaluate the sanitation levels of animal rooms, caging, equipment, and cage washing facilities.
