Avian Toxicology

Since its founding, EAG has developed into the largest and most respected avian toxicology laboratory in the world. Our scientists have unparalleled skill in performing avian acute and reproduction studies, as well as the ability to develop and conduct specialty studies designed to meet client-specific needs. In addition to commonly tested species, such as northern bobwhite, Japanese quail (Coturnix), mallard, zebra finch and canary, we perform studies with other species such as chickens, pheasants, house sparrows, pigeons and partridge.
