An interesting live Webinar, organized on May 14th 2020, entitled “Improving Animal Modelling with 24/7 Home Cage Monitoring in Bio-exclusion/Biocontainment Mouse Housing Systems” will discover the latest added value of the DVC® technology applied to the ISO Caging system in terms of data replicability, animal welfare and better science with 24/7 locomotor activity data in an important moment as today, when a surging response to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an exponential increase in study support for biocontainment and bio-exclusion research.
Mouse models are being rapidly developed in both areas, and biosafe housing of these animal models is critical. Additionally, the webinar will show how non-invasive home cage monitoring can improve the translational value of these research models.
The Webinar will show with examples how Locomotor activity patterns can be monitored 24/7 as a diagnostic tool for biosecurity studies. Researchers, staff and animals alike will also benefit from a decreased need for animal handling, caging manipulations and animal monitoring.
This webinar will be most valuable for institutions where biocontainment and bio-exclusion 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 use of non-invasive activity monitoring.
This webinar will show the added value of the DVC® and how home cage monitoring can improve the value for better research reporting and reproducibility while potentially reducing stress in lab mice, ultimately accelerating research results.
