Turnkey preclinical vivarium facilities with integrated services for early-stage biotechs.
Work with a team that’s dedicated to supporting the needs of evolving biotechs. With OnDemand vivarium rental solutions, you can initiate preclinical in vivo studies in our AAALAC-accredited vivarium lab space in as little as two weeks, complete with Ph.D.-backed husbandry management, regulatory oversight, and optional local contract research services.
Get into vivarium space faster than with other providers. Begin using state-of-the-art vivarium rental rooms in as little as two weeks, with rodents available for your research within days of your move in.
Explora's flexible services and network evolve with you. Eliminate the worry of scaling or modifying your vivarium lab as your research evolves with our flexible shared and private room options and rapid equipment access. Local add-on support extends your research team with our technical support, instrumentation, and contract research services.
Working with Explora means partnering with a team that is committed to helping you reduce research risks. Operating under high health standards, AAALAC-accreditation, and OLAW assurance mean your colonies are safer. Maintaining a strong control on the number of clients per facility and room also help reduce the overall pathogen risk.
Renting vivarium lab space with our OnDemand model inherently reduces your capital expenditure. You save time and costs on real estate and building out space that would still serve you 5 years from now but that you’ll only use a fraction of today.
Get more than just the basics with our OnDemand vivarium facilities. In addition to turnkey animal holding and procedure rooms, researchers also have access to:

Explora’s OnDemand solutions enabled Y Combinator company Asher Biotherapeutics to win follow-on investment by meeting critical preclinical data deadlines, maintaining control of its research, and gaining essential flexibility as it grew.
We jump-started our preclinical research program by stepping right into pre-built, pre-staffed, regulatory-compliant vivarium space. We were able to start with Explora within two weeks. And when we need more space, they’ll be there for us.
The high-quality, reproducible results that we will generate in Explora’s facilities should help us accelerate our timelines and get us to that next round of funding sooner. And when we need more space, they’ll be there for us.

As a small biotech, we need a vivarium management solution that’s more than just a landlord. Explora BioLabs has been an extension of our team with its husbandry staff and scientific expertise.
A vivarium is sometimes referred to as an animal research facility. A vivarium is typically designed with different features that aid in controlling as many aspects of the environment as possible. The purpose of a vivarium is to provide a controlled environment for research animals of all types to live in.
Animal husbandry is often described as a branch of science that is focused on the caring, breeding, and sometimes farming of animals. Many different animals are a part of the animal husbandry industry, including livestock, dogs, rodents, etc. There are many different uses for animal husbandry. From raising and selectively breeding cattle to housing and caring for rodents used in scientific research, animal husbandry processes are utilized. Working with Explora means having your research animals monitored closely so you can focus on your research.
The Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) is an international accreditation program that evaluates an organization’s use of live animals in testing, teaching, or researching. Organizations that either meet or exceed the expectations set by the AAALAC are given accreditation after an extensive internal review process.
When a research vivarium has AAALAC accreditation, it shows that a certain level of accountability has been achieved. AAALAC accreditation is a voluntary process that research labs go through. The accreditation requirements go beyond what is simply required by the law. When a vivarium has been AAALAC accredited, the public understands that the vivarium is committed and responsible.
Vivarium development costs are one of the most costly builds for a life science company. Vivarium development comprises some of the most expensive square footage in life science real estate, many times reaching $600–$1,000 per square foot. The necessary requirements of proper air handling systems, back up power systems, research equipment, and waste disposal considerations are all factors that add to the cost of vivarium development.
