A Look Back at 2017 Lends an Optimistic View of the Year Ahead
Posted on January 29, 2018 by Pete Kissinger
Since reengaging with BASi in 2017, I've seen positive trends that matter for 2018. We've had four consecutive quarters with positive earnings after a rough decade with both a slowly recovering economy and ongoing restructuring of the biopharma industry. Investing in growth is a priority. It is well recognized that life science innovation is very healthy, with new initiatives taking hold in editing out genetic abnormalities and marshaling the immune system to help root out a variety of cancers. The FDA approved many new therapies in 2017 and now promises to ease the way to more.

FAQ Series: Is there an alternative to the traditional rat and mouse collars for the RaturnTM?
Posted on 1/29/2020 by Shelly Carballo
Over the years, our clients have found alternatives to the standard black collar that we use to connect to the Raturn. Some use commercially available jackets or harnesses, some use vet wrap or soft tubing to soften the collar, and still others have developed their own methods. We'll be sharing some of these approaches so that you can become familiar with the variety of off-the-shelf and do-it-yourself options. This post includes the instructions and pattern used by Monash University to create a "home-made" jacket that is compatible with the Culex.
