Item description for A Manual For Laboratory Animal Management (Manuals in Biomedical Research-Vol. 5) by Jonathan David Ward & Jan-Thorsten Schantz...
Laboratory animal research remains a very important part of basic research and drug development. With the worldwide increase in biotechnology, more and more researchers are required to use animals for research. However, many have basic or little training in experimental techniques or in the background information, which remains very important. This book rectifies the problem by providing animal researchers and technicians with the essentials for conducting their work in the laboratory, offering detailed protocols and information that can be referred to on a daily basis. Broadly covering a number of important topics, it draws attention to many of the techniques required to conduct animal research well and responsibly in order to obtain better experimental results.
