Is it possible to maintain germ-free animals on an Animal Care Systems rack? The answer is yes!

Jul 29, 2016

Experimental studies on germ free animals in most institutions are typically performed in sterile isolators. These studies are often short term (2 – 12 weeks) and usually only utilize a small number of cages (2 – 6). For the facilities this means breaking down and recycling several isolators a month resulting in increased labor for the facility staff and ‘down time’ for investigators. The process of breaking down, recycling and testing is time consuming and can take up to 3 weeks. Not only does this process affect investigator’s ability to start their next experiment, it requires a good deal of a technician’s time, which could be spent in other ways. With so many negatives associated with this process, the authors decided to see if they could maintain germ free animals on a conventional mouse rack. The answer is yes!
