ClearH2O’s HydroGel® products are the world’s #1 choice for hydrating research animals. With over 100 million research animals having been shipped using ClearH2O products, animal researchers across the globe are elevating both animal condition and research productivity using gel technology. While our hydration products are industry-acclaimed, our nutrition and medication delivery products are also critical components of leading research protocols. Our nutrition-focused DietGel® products are a purified, more efficient, and easy-to-administer option for supplemental dietary support of lab animals. The enticing flavor profiles are designed specific to optimizing rodent palatability, ensuring consumption and promoting optimal health. ClearH2O’s medication delivery products—including MediGel® and MediDrop®—are designed for accurate oral dosing of target therapeutics through flavor-enhanced nutritional gels. Our medicated gel formulations significantly reduce, and even eliminate the need for injections and the associated animal handling that is standard with traditional methods. By eliminating the pain and stress caused by the administration of medication through injection, you’re helping your lab animals deliver better research outcomes while making animal welfare a top priority.
