NAMSA’s preclinical, interventional and surgical research services provide support for all model types, treatments and implant requirements. Our highly sought-after teams are expert at helping Sponsors utilize data to bridge preclinical safety endpoints to proposed clinical endpoints, allowing clinical labs to standardize measurements and obtain expert interpretations of results.
Cutting edge imaging technology is at the heart of all research processes, including diagnostic imaging for visualizing implants, diagnosing defects or disease, and documenting research outcomes. Our surgical staff, Doctors of Veterinary Medicine and/or Academy of Surgical Research-certified, are equipped with the necessary tools to support your entire procedure. Our teams also provide the opportunity to fill in specific gaps in procedure roles so you may focus on duties during implant or treatment procedures.
Some of our most requested therapeutic research areas include: Cardiovascular, Dental, Dermal, Electrophysiology, Gastrointestinal, Neuromodulation, Orthopedics, Pulmonary, Urogential, Wound Healing, and many others.
