For information on the NIA Mutant Mouse Aging Colony, see NIA Mutant Mouse Aging Colony Handbook 
The National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), maintains colonies of barrier-raised, Specific Pathogen-Free (SPF) rodents under contractual arrangement with commercial vendors, specifically for use in aging research. They are not available for use as a general source of adult animals for unrelated areas of research. Animals from the NIA aged rodent colonies are available to investigators at academic and non-profit research institutions under the terms described on the Eligibility Criteria page (link below). NIA rodents are provided through contracts with different contractors and information on the source of specific strains is provided on the Location of Colonies page.
Orders must be submitted through the online rodent ordering system (ROS) (http://arc.niapublications.org/acb/stores/1/ ). Due to the volume of business handled by the Order Desk, it is imperative that order forms be completely and correctly filled out (all fields completed). Incomplete order forms will be declined. We can only offer following week delivery for those oders for which completed order forms are received by the deadline of Tuesday noon, Eastern time.
