Taconic Biosciences Announces New San Diego Location

Taconic Biosciences Announces New San Diego Location Local Commercial Animal Model Production and Colony Management Services Available to West Coast Customers GlobeNewswire January 02, 2020

RENSSELAER, N.Y., Jan. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing drug discovery animal model solutions, announces the availability of both commercial animal model production and colony management services through a new location in San Diego. 

Taconic can now provide critical drug discovery research solutions locally to west coast customers.  The new space, located on the Center for Novel Therapeutics, meets all of Taconic’s global quality and animal health standards

When providing animal model solutions, proximity to the customer can be an important factor.  Taconic's San Diego location provides several benefits to customers, including expanded availability and increased weekly delivery dates for specific commercial models, additional flexibility in ordering timeframes, improved performance for models sensitive to long transit times, and the ability to readily collaborate with local researchers on colony management programs.  The portfolio of models available from the San Diego location will evolve over time, with some of Taconic’s most popular animals available immediately: B6, RAGN12, and NASH.

“Taconic’s greatest strength is the depth of relationship we develop with our customers in providing the best animal model solutions,” shared Nancy J. Sandy, chief executive officer of Taconic.  “Being in close proximity to the booming biotechnology industry of California is a great opportunity to elevate our relationships and bring even greater value to researchers.”
