Medanex Clinic


Located at the heart of Europe, Medanex Clinic is a leading GLP-certified CRO for preclinical studies in large animal models.

Our preclinical services range from early model development and feasibility studies to regulatory GLP testing for medical devices and novel therapies. Medanex masters the most challenging surgical procedures for cardiovascular implants like total artificial heart (TAH), assist devices (VAD) and valve implantation (TAVI and SVR). We are equally experienced in other disciplines like orthopedics (e.g. critical sized bone defects), ophthalmology, gastroenterology and skin healing models. Our chronic medical follow-up is unexcelled, even for instrumented animals (e.g. chronic ECMO testing in awake sheep for up to 30 days).

The state-of-the-art surgical suites, imaging equipment and laboratories were recently upgraded with guest offices, conferencing room, auditorium and cafeteria. This makes Medanex Clinic also ideally suited to organize theoretical and practical surgical training.

Our specialists share their knowledge also outside the facility as a consultancy service to research groups and lab animal facilities.

The 900m² indoor animal accommodation is designed to meet the highest animal welfare standards and the animals can enjoy outdoor access to pastures.

We are a CRO with a passion for excellence. As such, we are committed to “raising the bar” in every aspect of preclinical testing.
