The VivariGard© Program ensures the eradication of pathogenic organisms, such as pinworms, in the vivarium and laboratory.  The program combines proven approaches to both assess the load—and eradicate—microscopic and macroscopic biologicals threatening the lives of animals and the outcomes of research programs in which they are needed.
This program is comprised of multiple components that include Quip Laboratories’ proprietary chemistries, state-of-the-art equipment and proven methodologies for design, monitoring, testing and education of both facility staff and researchers.

This approach has helped protect premier biomedical research facilities across the U.S. and we are proud of the role it has played in enabling world class facilities to resume, and seamlessly maintain, research programs involving the most complex and sensitive animal models.

This comprehensive program employs both technical equipment (the components used to assess bio-load and to administer biocides) as well as our team of biosafety experts who are dedicated to excellence in the support of our clients’ superior operational performance as well as their research goals.
