Waiving Quarantine Requirements

All MMRRC Centers are actively seeking Approved Vendor Status at Institutions across the US, or requesting mice from our Centers bypass quaratine.  By allowing our mice to bypass quarantine, Investigators can begin their experiments earlier and save money from quarantine costs.  The MMRRCs have strict biosecurity standards and many institutions consider the MMRRC as an approved vendor, a conditionally approved vendor or waive or modify requirements for quarantine of our animals.  Please visit the following link for more information on all of our centers:  https://www.mmrrc.org/about/approvedVendor.php
