Mouse handling: Posters

To support the adoption of non-aversive methods for picking up mice, we have produced an A2-sized poster for display in animal facilities and laboratories. The poster is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Greek.

Hard copies (currently not available due to COVID)

Whilst we have previously been able to send hard copies of these posters around the world, we are currently unable to do so due to COVID restrictions. However, we are now able to offer downloadable copies, subject to the terms and conditions outlined below.

The proper use of the mouse handling poster requires the photos to be clearly visible, as they demonstrate the correct handling technique. They therefore must be printed by a professional print service at the full A2 size. Further guidance is included in the cover page, which should not be removed from the PDF file.
