Subcutaneous Tumor Models (Xenograft Models & Syngeneic Models) / Xenograft Models

Field of Application

Xenograft models are the most frequently used test systems for the evaluation of in vivo efficacy of novel anticancer drug candidates. Tumor cells are subcutaneously implanted on the flank of animals, mostly mice or rats, where they proliferate and form measurable tumors. In addition xenograft models are cost-effective.
