Project plans for experiments and breeding

Project plans

Experiments:

 

In order to start a research project in the animal facilities in Biomedicine it is necessary to fill out a project plan for the experiment. The purpose of the project plan is to give the animal caretakers, veterinarians and other staff an overview of the main welfare issues, necessary resources and space needed in the animal facilities as well as any occupational health and safety challenges. The project plan also includes the animal experiment permission number, issue date of the permission to be used as well as name of the permission holder. Name and contact information on the researchers associated with the project is also listed. The completed project plan should be attached when ordering animals.

Breeding:
In order to start a breeding project or breeding of specific genotypes in the animal facilities at Biomedicine it is necessary to fill out a breeding plan. The purpose of the breeding plan is to give the animal caretakers, veterinarians and other staff an overview of the main welfare issues, potential phenotypes and to allocate space in the animal facility for the breeding.

Use of biological agents or chemicals

By use of biological or chemical agents there need need to be made a biological or chemical workplace assessment (APB) before the start of the project. This is an integral part of the project agreement. See also Animal experiments and occupational health and safety.
