Standard Operating Procedures for Vivaria
Guidelines for Laboratory Animals

Purpose

The purpose of standard operating procedures is to provide guidelines with respect to the housing and husbandry of laboratory animals used in research and teaching at James Madison University. The quality of housing and husbandry has a major impact on laboratory animal health and welfare. The caging or housing system is an important factor in the physical environment of laboratory animals and not only influences the well-being of the animals but also acts as an experimental variable.  Federal guidelines for use of vertebrate animals in research contain specific provisions for basic husbandry. The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals states: "A good management program provides the environment, housing, and care that permit animals to grow, mature, reproduce, and maintain good health; provides for their well-being; and minimizes variations that can affect research results."

The following Standard Operating Procedures were developed to meet the requirements of the Animal Welfare Act and the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
