Specialized DART Necropsy Support

EPL is pleased to announce that our necropsy teams have received specialized training in support of Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology (DART) necropsies.
DART training is focused primarily on the recognition of skeletal abnormalities (e.g., the presence or absence of ossification), bone morphometry (measured length and area), relationships between bones, abnormal bone fusion, and the presence of additional bony structures or sutures, in Day 21 rat fetuses and Day 29 rabbit fetuses. Handling, restraint, sex determination, euthanasia protocols, and C-sectioning methods were reviewed for each species, in addition to fetal external examination procedures and the appropriate use of gross lesion descriptions.
