Despite the fact that the majority of research animals are rodents, the trainers at the Research Animal Resources Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found training material on the proper handling of mice and rats in biomedical research to be limited. So, they developed videos, narratives, pictures, and text to teach common handling, injection, and bleeding techniques.
The resulting DVDs and supporting manuals are complete training resources and refreshers for lab animal veterinarians, veterinary technicians, animal care staff, trainers, and researchers working with mice and rats.
Each DVD Provides:
- Narrated video clips that demonstrate and describe each procedural technique
- Easy navigation to desired techniques, including handling/transfer, oral gavage, blood draw, restraint, injection, and ear notching and tagging
Each Manual Includes:
- Full text narratives and procedural handouts with full-color illustrations of each technique included on the DVDincluding purpose and application of the procedure, recommended skills, and necessary supplies
- Supplementary chapters that provide normative data for the laboratory rat and mouse
