ALN Magazine wants to honor the best at our 2016 TurnKey Conference, to be held May 24-25, 2016 at the Gaylord National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD. The 2016 TurnKey Awards are comprised of two categories: the Facility of the Year Award and the Team of the Year Award
Depression is a serious issue for expecting mothers. Left untreated, depression could have...
Duke University researchers have discovered a promising target for renal cell carcinomas. A...
LabSand® is a revolutionary biodegradable hydrophobic sand that has a natural non-toxic urine-repelling coating. Use it to quickly collect urine samples from laboratory rodents without resorting to metabolic caging protocols or invasive procedures.
Some of the earliest nerve cells to develop in the womb shape brain circuits that process sights and sounds, but then give way to mature networks that convert this sensory information into thoughts.
In real estate, location is key. It now seems the same concept holds true when it comes to stopping pain.
As brain cells age they lose the fibers that receive neural impulses, a change that may underlie cognitive decline. Researchers at the University of California, Irvine recently found a way to reverse this process in rats.
It is normal for our immune system to occasionally fly into an inflammatory rage to defend the host (us) against pathogens or even tumor cells. Problems arise when the rage persists or is re-directed against one’s self, as occurs in autoimmune disease.
New research suggests that ravens share at least some of the human ability to think abstractly about other minds, adapting their behavior by attributing their own perceptions to others.
Two proteins, p38 gamma and p38 delta, control the accumulation of fat in the liver, a process linked to the development of insulin resistance and diabetes, which are common outcomes of obesity. The study shows that inhibition of these proteins with specific inhibitors has potential as a treatment for fatty liver disease.
Proven to provide biologically relevant enrichment, Envirodri encourages foraging and nest building, which, in turn, reduces a variety of stressors and undesirable behaviors. Envirodri helps provide a more naturalistic environment. Additionally, Envirodri’s help in reducing stress leads to improved breeding performance and food conversion rates.
A new mouse-human modeling system could be used to study neural crest development as well as the modeling of a variety of diseases, according to a new study from the Whitehead Institute.

University of Massachusetts Medical School researchers have found a way to more efficiently delivery a CRISPR/Cas9 therapeutic to adult mice with the metabolic disease Tyrosinemia type I that may also prove to be safer for use in humans.
Scientists at EPFL have solved a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they have improved both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
There’s apparently safety in numbers, even for cancer cells. New research in mice suggests that cancer cells rarely form metastatic tumors on their own, preferring to travel in groups since collaboration seems to increase their collective chances of survival, according to researchers at Johns Hopkins.
In the face of a disrupted circadian rhythm, a low-salt diet and a hormone known to constrict blood vessels have the same unhealthy result: elevated resting blood pressure and vascular disease, scientists report.
Galilei CageTalkers™ offer a vast potential of automation and increase in productivity and efficiency in the cage and animal documentation processes. CageTalkers™ can be also integrated with 3rd party Animal Management Systems via Webservices as a mere CageTalker™ Driver or a separate Animal Room Automation Module.
