Gamma-Vet is a privately owned organization, founded in 1996, with the objective to offer high quality scientific service as a preclinical Contact Research Organization. The educated staff of the enterprise consists of radiopharmacists, veterinarians, physicist, chemist, bio-engineer and nuclear medicine technicians, animal keepers with many years of experience.

Gamma-Vet offers a professional, accurate, responsible scientific support for your pre-clinical, clinical and explorative studies, with consultation opportunity to fertilize your initial idea with our professional and creative thinking. We are also scientists with a heart for animals-

  • When possible, we find adopting parents for retiring test animals
  • When possible, we offer cell cultures, in vitro models instead of test animals
  • When it is advantageous for all parties, we offer the owners of spontaneously diseased animals the opportunity to take part in pre-clinical studies to find cure for the disease, thus help translational research as well.
