The OncoRat SRG possesses published characteristics that may complement or overcome the limitations of the Nude rat and SCID mice such as nude mice, NOD SCID mice and NSG mice. Publications are broken down by application including xenograft models and tumor models, humanized immune system for immuno-oncology studies and preclinical trials. Hera, its collaborators and customers are continuing the development and adoption of the OncoRat SRG in different research areas and will update this page accordingly.

Cancer Xenograft Model
