Among the Base's technical services team are six specialists with senior titles and ten with associate senior titles, six Ph.D./MS supervisors, as well as experienced hands-on personnel in animal experiments. Following are specific services provided by the center, including lab animal rearing, toxicology and pharmacodynamic evaluation, preparation of animal models for medical purposes, biological product development, and the sample analysis and data management of lab animals. The Center also performs experiments on animals for drug and biological material testing, such as tests for teratogenesis, mutagenesis and carcinogenesis, cytotoxicity tests, pyrogen tests,  abnormal toxicity tests, acute/subacute/chronic toxicity tests, skin irritation tests, allergy tests, hemolysis tests, and other safety evaluation tests. Animal pathogenic microbial detection, in vivo and vitro parasite detection, and community veterinary healthcare services are also accessible at the Center.The labs at the center possesses advanced equipment such as small animal in vivo imaging systems, small animal ethology operation and analysis systems, animal lung function systems, automatic veterinary blood analyzers, animal non-invasive blood pressure systems, X-ray systems (DR systems), color ultrasound systems and other corresponding technical services for various research projects.
