Sequani Limited are a Contract Research Organisation (CRO) that test pharmaceutical drugs, chemical compounds and medical devices on animals.
Tests that are carried out at Sequani include acute toxicity tests, reproduction toxicology tests, carcinogenicity tests, mutagenicity tests and repeat dose toxicology tests.
Among the animal ‘test models‘ that Sequani imprison and experiment on are beagle dogs, rabbits, genetically stunted pigs known as ‘minipigs’, transgenic mice, chinese hamsters, rats and guinea pigs. These animals know no other life than that of which their captors have chosen for them, ‘a life of imprisonment, misery, suffering, fear and death’.
Behind the steel gates, CCTV cameras and ten foot high fences at Sequani, cruel and uneccessary experiments are carried out on animals. This place is shrouded in secrecy, except on occasion when it is possible to hear the dogs barking for their freedom near to the back of the complex where they are held.
