Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC) has granted full accreditation to Absorption Systems' GLP facility in San Diego, California, for preclinical testing of drugs, biologics and medical devices.

Absorption Systems claimed that its GLP-compliant facility provides clients with a broad range of services, experimental models and surgical capabilities, offering clients access to specialised technical staff and equipment, rapid turnaround time and competitive pricing.

Following an on-site inspection, AAALAC determined that Absorption Systems’ San Diego facility is committed to the highest level of animal care and research practices, resulting in the facility’s accreditation renewal.

Patrick Dentinger, president and CEO of Absorption Systems, said: “Absorption Systems is thrilled that AAALAC has commended our commitment to exceed international standards of animal care.

“AAALAC’s renewal of our accreditation demonstrates not only our dedication to responsible animal care and use, but also our pledge to provide our clients with superior resources and services in advancing their drugs, biologics, or medical devices toward IND, NDA, BLA, IDE, 510(k) or PMA regulatory filings.”

Absorption Systems is a provider of testing drugs for ADMET (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion and Toxicity).
