One aspect of maintaining and updating an environmental enrichment program is the regular review and evaluation of enrichment devices and their current uses. The program review process includes maintaining an accurate inventory of devices to reflect the current and projected animal census, evaluating species-specific use, determining product sustainability, and the replacement of older items with new and novel devices as needed.
Scientists have identified a gene that helps regulate how well nerves of the central nervous...
Scientists have taken a huge leap toward identifying root causes of psoriasis, an inflammatory...
A new study has shown that neonatal mouse hearts have varying regenerative capacities depending upon the severity of injury.
Research shows that a small molecule directs the activity of key “clock proteins,” offering the potential to manage circadian rhythm and treat problems that are associated with its dysfunction, like sleep and anxiety disorders.
A research team has discovered a molecular “rheostat” in the brain’s appetite control center that may provide new insights into obesity, which is at epidemic levels in this country.
Viral therapy for childhood cancer could possibly improve if treatments such as chemotherapy do not first suppress patients’ immune systems. Research on mouse tumors resembling rhabdomyosarcoma, the most common soft tissue sarcoma in children, revealed that the immune system’s T cells may be just as critical to fighting tumor cells as the viral therapy injections themselves.
RackNet is a remote monitoring and information management solution for the Innovive Disposable IVC System. The software wirelessly connects all racks to a computer or mobile device via a secure web interface, providing you with complete access to rack controls, system alarms and operational history.
New research suggests genes that extend lifespan won't necessarily improve health in advanced age.
Two new drug compounds – one of which has already proven useful in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis – appear to be effective in treating endometriosis, a disorder that, like MS, is driven by estrogen and inflammation, scientists report.
For years, it was assumed the world was flat. Now, we have a laboratory that orbits our big, blue marble. So, it’s funny to think of returning to flatness aboard the International Space Station, but this outpost currently houses flatworms for research. The study of these creatures has the potential to be rather robust in implications for regenerative medicine.
No. 904 is an electric-heat humidity chamber with vertical conveyor, currently in use to cure silicone rubber at a customer’s facility. The unit provides a maximum relative humidity of 90 percent at 100°F. Workspace dimensions measure 36”W x 45”D x 119”H.
By splicing animals together, scientists have shown that young blood rejuvenates old tissues. Now, they are testing whether it works for humans.
The study of the Caenorhabditis elegans worm will aid researchers understanding of the genetics of human disease, whilst reducing the need for animal testing.
Researchers have uncovered a key factor in understanding the elevated cancer risk associated with gene therapy. They conducted research on mice with a rare disease similar to one in humans, hoping their findings may eventually help improve gene therapy for humans.
An animal study has uncovered what controls the ability of healthy hearts to speed up in response to circumstances ranging from fear to a jog around the block.
E-Z Trak is a revolutionary Electronic Animal Management solution offering essential features to facility managers and veterinary directors with amazing accuracy. Five functions of daily activities in a single program include Welfare Management, Facility Task Management, Census & Billing, Space Allocation & Planning and Real-Time Data Updates.
To better understand what happens during immune reactions in the body, researchers have developed a new way of labeling T-cells, allowing them to track the T-cell movement in mice using non-invasive positron emission technology (PET).
