Porcine Tissues

Post-Mortem Tissues, Organs and Biologicals

ABI is a leading supplier of post mortem porcine tissues, organs, glands, and glandular secretions. These products are harvested at USDA federally inspected abattoirs under strict environmental conditions. Rapid and accurate harvesting, proper trimming, temperature control, timeliness and lack of contamination are key factors in deriving quality post mortem porcine tissues and organs.

ABI has highly trained anatomists and physiologists who cannot only harvest most any pig tissue, gland, organ or secretion, but can recommend which tissues to harvest based upon the researchers specific needs. Handling, processing and packaging are also time-sensitive and temperature-dependent and only trained and experience personnel are employed by ABI.

Another important part of this process is the proper packing and shipping of the porcine tissues to prevent degradation and poor quality products. ABI has developed materials and methods of packaging to ensure tissues survive adverse conditions while in shipment. ABI has developed time-proven and tested protocols that allow tissues and organs to remain in high -quality condition during the entire process of extraction, trimming, handling, cooling, sorting, preserving, bagging, boxing, shipping and delivery.

Porcine Organs & Glands

ABI offers porcine vessels, tissues, glands, organs and glandular secretions from essentially all areas of the model. Tissues, glands and organs are offered singly, as pairs or multiples, and as blocks. Organs and glands can also be cannulated or catheterized specifically for use with scientific instruments. 


The Value of Animal Growth Charts in Biomedical Research

Our porcine growth chart allows clients to know the expected rate (average daily gain) of growth over time of our Yorkshire cross bred swine herd at all ages.
