Where can I acquire defanged threats to use in an Antivirus Testing lab?

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
I would like to conduct some of my own testing on a couple of Antivirus solutions for our company. I have seen security presentations where the engineers had folders full of "defanged" threats to use to test the ability of different antivirus solutions, but I have not been able to find any of these files to download myself. Does anyone know where I could acquire these?
