Happy summer (to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere, at least)! After months of rain and clouds in Michigan, the sun is shining and we are enjoying evenings and weekends outdoors. With Independence Day just around the corner, we wanted to remind you that TransPharm will close on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 3rd and re-open on the morning of Monday, July 8th. We’d like to wish our fellow Americans a fun and safe 4th of July holiday, and to all of our international clients, we look forward to serving you next week. For urgent matters, we can be reached via email.
The new year is off to a chilly start in Michigan! Polar Vortex 2019 brought record low temperatures, several inches of snow, and lots of slippery ice. Schools, businesses, and even the state government closed due to the weather, but TransPharm only shut down for 4 hours during the two weeks of Arctic conditions. We are committed to being available for our clients regardless of Mother Nature’s plans!
TransPharm hit a major milestone in September! We have now performed over one thousand preclinical studies since opening in 2008. The team will be celebrating by going out to lunch at a local restaurant.
We’re not mousing around…TransPharm now has a blog! Stay up-to-date on the latest in microbiology, infectious disease, and antimicrobial resistance with original posts from our in-house scientific writer.
Although TransPharm is best known for our animal models of infectious disease, we have recently had more requests for our in vitro services. We’d like to take this chance to remind you of what we have to offer outside the vivarium. Our team has experience performing a range of antimicrobial susceptibility testing, including time-kill kinetics assays, checkerboard analyses, minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) testing, and multiple methods of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) testing.
