About Taconic Biosciences, Inc.

Yes, they are cute, but Taconic Biosciences prefers that you don't pet its animals. The family-owned company provides research rodents and related products and services to pharmaceutical and biomedical companies, government agencies, and academic institutions in Asia, Europe, and North America through its facilities in Denmark, Germany, and the US. Taconic specially breeds rats and mice, the workhorses of the biomedical industry, to be disease-free or genetically modified to exhibit certain traits to help researchers develop new therapies for human disease. Other company units offer drug- and animal-safety testing and monoclonal antibody production. Private equity firm H.I.G. Capital, in partnership with company management, acquired Taconic Biosciences in 2019.
