Techniques Training: Rat

Deornellis, David, D'Anna, Amy and Astrofsky, Keith (2013) Techniques Training: Rat. American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, Memphis, TN.


This book was created for trainers and trainees as a pictorial, step-by-step guide to perform basic techniques in rats. A procedure is any activity carried out on the animal, such as applying an ear tag, blood collection, or a surgery. All of the federal laws, regulations, policies and guidelines applicable to animal research have a core requirement for the humane treatment of the animals involved in a study. Accordingly, your IACUC will have requirements for the proper care of your animals prior to, during, and after a research procedure (peri-procedural care). Before performing any procedures on live animals, personnel must have the appropriate training. This training should include how to do the procedure itself, as well as how to provide appropriate peri-procedural care to the animal. Training may be obtained from a variety of sources, such as the qualified veterinary, training, or research staff. This book is intended to be an adjunct resource for the training that personnel need to become competent and qualified for performing the basic procedures presented here.
