Animal welfare heavily influences the outcomes of your research. Careful consideration is required when it comes to breeding, either commercially or academically. Animal care and husbandry, nutrition and enrichment, and health monitoring are factors in ensuring research outcomes.
Envigo’s Jamie Naden and Barbara Mickelson partner with Brooke Sword (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Michele Melton (Horizon Discovery) to discuss the importance of care and husbandry for immunodeficient rodents and how it can affect your research.
You'll discover from this presentation:
- Care and husbandry of immunodeficient rodents at a commercial breeder and an academic institution
- Nutritional considerations for immunodeficient rodents
- The importance of biosecurity to ensure research outcomes
