About this item

A spiral-bound technical handbook for research labs and lab workers, this book is a husbandry guide for keeping and doing experiments using germ-free and gnotobiotic mice. It is designed to be a resource for establishing and running a facility for germ-free mouse research. It includes instructions for expanding multi-user facilities and applying new technologies in an existing facility. As these mice lack all normal symbiotic microbes including gut fauna, keeping them alive is difficult and they must be kept at all times in aseptic bubble isolation with HEPA filtration and double air locks. However, research using them is becoming more and more common, and there is no standard education for training technicians. The book is fully illustrated with color photographs of isolators, sterilizers, and other equipment and transfer procedures. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
