GD Animal Health has been a reliable partner for pharmaceutical and other animal health companies for performing research projects in the field of veterinary medicine for many years. We perform many in vivo and in vitro laboratory and field studies on biologicals and pharmaceuticals for poultry, swine and cattle. These studies are conducted by qualified, specialised and experienced personnel in accordance with international standards.
GD Animal Health has their own animal facilities for poultry, swine and cattle in which studies can be performed under conditioned circumstances. In addition GD Animal Health has close contacts with veterinarians and farmers in the Netherlands. Therefore field studies can be performed efficiently and large amounts of samples and data can be obtained within a narrow time frame. In case of multicentre trials, samples originating from countries inside and outside the EU can also be sent to our laboratory.
Study design and performance
Study designs are always made in agreement with our client’s needs. Furthermore, GD Animal Health can contribute to the development of the experimental design and the writing of protocols using (site-specific) datacapture forms in compliance with the required quality standards. To keep our clients properly informed, we send regular study progress updates. After study completion, a final report is made. Participation of our scientific staff in the preparation of manuscripts for publication in scientific journals can be part of the research project.
Contract research can be performed in compliance with the applicable quality standards.
The portfolio of GD includes, but is not limited to:
- safety and efficacy studies of veterinary biologicals and pharmaceuticals;
- studies to obtain vaccine or challenge-strain candidates;
- quality control tests of final products;
