Hygiene is typically not the subject of many veterinary innovations; in all cases it is rather a condition “sine qua non”. Without it, research with live material or animals is useless. Axcentive counts many R&D centres and laboratories amongst its clients – supplied both directly and often via our distributors. These are well-known companies who rely on Halamid® to provide a pathogen-free, disease free and otherwise hygienic testing environment, excluding all kinds of potentially troubling vectors. In cases of live animals, Halamid® improves welfare, by reducing disease pressure and stress.
