Animal Safety

In line with recommendations from the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA), we can test rodent sera for the presence of viral contamination. We use ELISAs to detect specific antibodies against rodent viruses. The ELISA method has been validated in our laboratory.
