This updated and expanded resource of proven value will be important to scientists and researchers, veterinarians, animal care personnel, facilities managers, institutional administrators, policy makers involved in research issues, and animal welfare advocates. The opening size depends on the cage and rack system in use. Physical Plant The physical plant of an animal facility must be designed to maintain the proper environment for the animals and to facilitate the investigative use of the animals. Please notify the ARP office if unauthorized personnel request access or are present in the animal facilities or if facility doors are not working correctly. To minimize the resultant increase in the amount of personnel time and facility resources dedicated to these activities, the most labor-efficient devices should be incorporated.
The continuous maintenance of environments in these facilities must be without failure, downtime, or disruption. Doors should be tall enough to accommodate the free movement of racks with integrated blowers. Temperature, humidity and light cycles may be modified if required by experimental design. Code of Federal Regulations.
Because the air is conditioned heated and humidified or coolednot recirculating the conditioned air is expensive. Anyone bitten or otherwise injured while working with an animal should report the incident to their supervisor so an accident report may be submitted. This book w Medical Book Management of Laboratory Animal Care and Use Programs Within this changing environment, individuals charged with the management of laboratory animal facilities have a substantial responsibility to the institution, the public, and the animals. Those factors make it difficult to identify cost-saving measures that will apply universally. The use of dogs and cats in research in the U. Do scientists care about animals?

[Letters to Dr. Priestly, in answer to those he addressed to the Jews
Automatic watering systems for mice have been controversial both because some Laboratory animal facilities and management book develop dehydration if unable or untrained to manipulate the valves properly and because cages can be flooded if an automatic valve leaks or is continuously manipulated by the mice.
Food and bedding are likely to account for a high proportion of the supply costs. Where permitted by facility design and available space, existing facilities might consider retrofitting with equipment that provides greater storage capacity to achieve cost savings.
Epoxy terrazzo or resinous floor coatings are preferred. Cagewash—The hub for all cleaning, sanitizing, and husbandry activities. Automated record-keeping and integration with Building Automation Systems.
Facility Orientation Training All staff and students must complete the ARP Facility Orientation training specific for the animal facility they will be working in prior to gaining key card access to the building.
Security is a major concern for animal research facilities and can constitute a substantial cost item. Another method of energy recovery is to use heat exchangers to partially heat or cool the incoming outside air.
A wide variety of enrichment devices and supplies are available as specialty items from commercial sources. What they should have in common is solidity, that is the absence of voids in the top and bottom rails of the door, the jambs and the strike; an easily cleanable and maintainable surface like epoxy painted steel, stainless steel, or fiberglass reinforced plastic FRP ; and surface that won't dent or dink.
Electrical systems are ubiquitous.
The Guide identifies design issues, providing construction guidelines for functional areas; considerations such as drainage, vibration and noise control, and environmental monitoring; and specialized facilities for animal housing and research needs.
However, bulk ordering presents problems for some institutions. Introduction of robotics to handle repetitive procedures in the cage-washing area is a recent advance in long-term cost-saving measures.
Microbarrier cages are changed more frequently than open-top cages because of ammonia accumulation. These in turn influence room sizesroom environment, and circulation Laboratory animal facilities and management book.
If a medical emergency exists, call or go directly to the Mount Nittany Medical Center. Contact the ARP office for information on key card access and Facility Orientation training.
Various methods of bedding disposal were used Table 11dAppendix C. IVCs can also house many more rodents per square foot of facility space than the traditional method of using shelf racks and standard shoebox cages.
New caging and housing types, such as high density ventilated racks HDVRshave altered room design and are promoting the increased usage of computational fluid dynamics CFDs to model room environments and HVAC characteristics.
As directed by governmental policies, personnel with significant Laboratory animal facilities and management book contact must be included in an occupational health program.DVR manages 11 buildings encompassinggross square feet of animal housing and laboratory space at the NIH Bethesda campus, and 7 buildings encompassinggross square feet of animal housing space at the acre NIH animal center in Poolesville, Maryland.
First Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee Guidebook was developed by a committee under the auspices of the Applied Resear ch Ethics National Association (ARENA) and OPRR.
7th Edition of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals revised by. There is no “best” design applicable for all facilities and arguably not even a single “best” design for a given facility. For this reason, Planning and Designing Research Animal Facilities is not intended to be a “how to” book.
The goal is to cover the basic programmatic requirements of animal research facilities, provide ideas for.Books in The Laboratory Pdf Pocket Reference Series serve as ready references for individuals pdf in the husbandry and management of research animal facilities.
Most titles provide a single source reference for a specific species, including information that a student, technician, or investigator would need for the humane care and employment of the indicated species in a research setting.The Guide for Laboratory Animal Facilities and Care, and research personnel.
AALAS, in conjunction with the Laboratory Animal Management Association (LAMA), has offered laboratory animal management education through the Institute for Laboratory Animal Management (ILAM) since That publication arose from an initiative generated in Author: James F.
Taylor.This handbook is intended to ebook a comprehensive reference on Laboratory Quality Management System for all stakeholders in health laboratory processes, from management, to administration, to bench-work laboratorians. This handbook covers topics that are essential for quality management of a public health or clinical laboratory.
