26 Proactive Strategies to Ensure a Fully Compliant Lab

In 2010, the National Research Council has completed a major update of the Guide For The Care And Use Of Laboratory Animals — the “bible” of the animal-research world because its recommended standards and practices on the humane care and treatment of lab animals underpin many of the official regulations that govern animal research.

Animal laboratories must always be in compliance with governmental and institutional regulations — not just around inspection times.

But staying in compliance usually isn’t easy. Things can get out of kilter even in a well-managed lab if various staff members become lax or forgetful. This 70-pg report, "Laboratory Animal Welfare Compliance: 26 Expert Strategies Every PI Should Know," provides you with proactive steps you can take to keep your lab fully compliant with new regulations.

These include an in-depth look, and expert guidance for:
