Where to buy Wistar rats


Wistar rats are albino rats commonly used in laboratory procedure or experiments like anti inflammatory test, analgesic, diabetes, sensitization, wound healing, obesity , cholesterol, dengue, blood chemistry, psychological research, toxicological research  , pharmacological research  etc.

A lot of  Universities and institutions are now into bioscience and most of them doesn’t know where to get  Wistar rats. If you are one of the researcher and you need wistar rats you could try to purchase at:


Animal House – Standard and testing Division  -ITDI DOST

Address: std-itdi DOST compound taguig city

Tel:8372071  local-just say Standard and testing


You need  to reserve 2 months in advance if you want to avail rats especially if you need a lot of animals. But from time to time they have available animals so just call their number to inquire for availability.

But for availability purpose rather than purchasing wistar rats which are very limited in supply in the Philippines why not use Sprague Dawley rats. In terms of characteristic they are almost the same.
