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.
