|SERVICE DISRUPTION AT ZIRC|
Update August 21, 2014:
As a result of a quarantine room fire on May 31, ZIRC services continue to be disrupted and we are unable to supply resources at this time. Pathology and Health Services remain avai lable.
The soot and ash damage to the ZIRC building was quite extensive, requiring several more months for clean-up, demolition and reconstruction. We currently estimate resuming book and fish distribution in the Fall. We plan to ship existing fish orders first to ensure that our infrastructure is well re-established before taking new requests. Our ongoing health and breeding tests suggest that the main fish colony appears to be unharmed. The cryopreservation storage was unaffected by the incident. Please continue to monitor our website for updates.
We sincerely apologize for any disruption this situation may cause to your research. If you have an order pending at ZIRC, we will be in contact with you as soon as we are able to resume shipments. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
