Recommended Dose Volumes for Common Laboratory Animals

The goal of this project was to develop and implement a harmonized guideline for ideal and maximum dose volumes for various routes for the most common laboratory animals in biomedical research.

SyRF is a fully integrated online platform for performing systematic reviews of preclinical studies.

Topic: Reduction

The Design of Animal Experiments

"The Design of Animal Experiments" is intended for all research scientists who use laboratory animals, with the aim of helping them to design their own experiments more effectively.

Isogenic Strains

Isogenic strains (inbred strains and F1 hybrids) are like immortal clones of genetically identical individuals. The same genotype can be reproduced indefinitely. They have already made a substantial contribution to biomedical research.
