All animals are only obtained from the following approved animal suppliers:

- The Jackson Laboratory
Transportation of Animals from China
International animal shipment from Jiangsu Haimei Biocytogen LLC to Boston Biocytogen Animal Facility is undertaken by World Courier for safe and stable transfer of animals from China.
The shipping process is stressful for animals and results in a disruption of their normal environment. In the interest of animal welfare and experimental accuracy, Biocytogen Boston Animal Facility recommends not to use animals for any experimental procedures for at least 3 days after their arrival for animals delivered domestically and at least a week for the animals shipped from China.
