New Web Tutorial Promotes Greater Care in Handling Rodents in Research
The free web tutorials at the Procedures with Care website offer a detailed learning tool for those in research looking to learn or brush up on best practices for performing subcutaneous injection, gavage, intravenous injection, and surgical preparation in rats and mice. This effort was produced by Newcastle University with the support of the Institute of Animal Technology and the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research. The videos emphasize actions to lessen the stress of the animals in research. To view the tutorials, go to www.procedureswithcare.org.uk.
