The Andersons Lab Bedding

Anderson BeddingAs the sole manufacturer of Bed-o’Cobs, The Andersons has provided the research community with the most trusted name in bedding since 1962. While they began with a single product (1/4″ Bed-o’Cobs bedding), their premium product offering today includes 15 of the highest quality bedding, enrichment, nesting and specialty products.

As rodent work gained popularity in the 1960′s, Bed-o’Cobs was quickly recognized as “the bedding of choice” throughout the industry.  As DNA mapping and genome work began in the 1980′s, we continued to improve our products and services in accordance with researchers’ desires for the highest quality in bedding for their animals and studies.

While they were first known by our Bed-o’Cobs branded products, our product line now includes a much broader selection, aimed at making an unnatural environment more natural. From irradiated and qualified products available in autoclavable and bulk bags, to sterility and heavy metal testing, they also provide a number of services to the industry.
