We have rewarding working relations with our customers where courses and mutual knowledge-sharing improve conditions and terms for both minipigs and the people working with them. Göttingen Minipigs from Ellegaard are suitable for companies seeking a genetically and microbiologically well-defined animal model for biomedical research.


Our vision

The Göttingen Minipig should always be included as an option on equal terms with other non-rodent species in the selection of the most appropriate species for a study.
