SSR Lifesciences is a leader in:
Selective sourcing. No single type of source animal is ideal for all life science applications. We work closely with you to identify and source animals to optimize your application. Depending on your needs, we will provide materials sourced from animals in general-population, select or closed-herd programs.
Sourcing quality and customized traceability. Through Johnsonville, we leverage vast experience in selection of animals of the highest quality. We engage with a national network of suppliers and apply strict standards of selection that meet or exceed industry, FDA and USDA standards. We’re highly experienced in managing closed-herd programs, and can work directly with producers to establish vertical integration and traceability to the most demanding specifications.
Reliable volumes. Most suppliers are limited by the animals they stock. Our national supply network enables us to secure reliable volumes of even highly specific materials – an essential benefit for clients with time-sensitive projects. As the nation’s largest harvester of sows, we have found that this type of animal often offers more points of differentiation than smaller, younger animals for organ or tissue size, tensile strength, and natural anti-microbial and enzymatic properties.
