Meeting your experimental needs on small and large animals under high safety containment
Unique facilities and know-how...
The infectiology platform (PFIE) provides the whole international scientific community, both public and private, with high containment facilities for studying infectious diseases.
The PFIE conducts in vivo studies on a wide range of farm, wild and laboratory animal species. It enables experiments on numerous biological agents, including MOTs* and GMOs** to be conducted under BSL2 or BSL3 containment. The PFIE also develops new models and designs original experimental systems for veterinary and biomedical research.
... for targeted research...
The PFIE contributes to enhancing knowledge of infectious and parasitic diseases of farm animals and humans including zoonoses. It is involved in studying physiopathology and in developing tools for diagnosis and prevention.
... at an international level
The PFIE is part of the European network of containment facilities (Nadir, 2009-2013), and is also a member of ICSA – the Carnot Institute for Animal Health.
