Top 5 World-Renowned Mini Pig Providers

Mini pig animal models are quickly becoming the model of choice in many pharmaceutical development programs due to their physiological similarities in humans (cardiovascular, digestive, and urinary systems). These are also readily available and experience fewer adverse reactions to testing compounds than other large animal models.  Regulatory authorities now accept the mini pig as a suitable substitute to rodent models in various efficacy and safety evaluation studies.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
