Surgical Services

Southern Research maintains a fully operable surgical suite where laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques have been and can be used to facilitate tests or control article deposition at specific locations within the animal body (e.g., rabbit fallopian tubes, ferret duodenum). Intracranial, stereotaxic administration of test or control article capabilities are present and have been used for species ranging from rodents to nonhuman primates.
