Facilities :

The JNCASR Animal facility provides investigators with the infrastructure for breeding mice and for experimentation on   mice and rabbits. The in-house breeding room stocks in-bred strains of mice, bred on a limited scale. Generally each group breeds mice required for their own experiments. There is also a quarantine facility for animals acquired from registered breeders. The procurement of animals from other sources is strictly controlled by animal facility management and users are required to adhere to the guidelines. The breeding centre can provide a small number of mice if required for approved experimentation at JNCASR. Requests for animals must be made in the specified format well in advance.

Record keeping :

Daily record keeping is mandatory. Investigators must obtain approval of the IAEC before initiating experiments. Please fill the necessary forms for approval and record keeping before initiating experiments.
