Tecniplast is offering a webinar on the use of the DVC® System to optimize animal modelling in mouse vivaria. “Improving Animal Modelling with 24/7 Home Cage Monitoring in Bio-exclusion/Biocontainment Mouse Housing Systems” will detail how the DVC® technology applied to the ISO caging system can deliver improved data replicability, animal welfare, and research results.
Recently, a surging response to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an exponential increase in study support for biocontainment and bioexclusion research. Mouse models are being rapidly developed in both areas, and biosafe housing of these animal models is critical. Additionally, non-invasive home cage monitoring can improve the translational value of these research models. The webinar will show how locomotor activity patterns can be monitored 24/7 as a diagnostic tool for biosecurity studies. Researchers, staff, and animals will also benefit from a decreased need for animal handling, caging manipulations, and monitoring.
The session will be most valuable for institutions where biocontainment and bioexclusion work is being considered or conducted, and for researchers who wish to better understand what can be achieved through continuous measurement of animal welfare based of the use of non-invasive activity monitoring.
The one-hour webinar will be presented by John Hasenau, CEO of Lab Animal Consultants; Stefano Gaburro, Scientific Director of Digilab Solutions; and Tecniplast at 11:00 AM EDT on May 14, 2020.
