The Importance Of Mice Urinalysis

In the past, the difficulty of obtaining mouse urine, including the use of complex and stress-inducing metabolic cages, limited the use of urinalysis in research. Today, with the very humane use of LabSand, urine collection is extremely easy for researchers and very non-stressful and natural for mice, which has created the opportunity to expand the…

The Relationship Between Mice, Rats, And Testing

It may be surprising for those not involved in research to learn that about 95% of our genomes are the same as those of mice. This means that humans and mice,…

The Importance of Animal Welfare In Research Facilities

While many people have strong beliefs about the use of animals in research, the importance of mice and rats in developing treatments, pharmaceuticals, and even in understanding diseases cannot be understated. Top researchers and research facilities work diligently to ensure that animal welfare, including for the mice used within tests and research studies, is a…
