A showcase of organ-on-a-chip research funded by the NC3Rs, highlighting the technology's scientific and 3Rs benefits.
Virtual presentations of 3Rs projects from across Europe.
Specifically around re-starting breeding and animal experiments after a pause (e.g. work with mice after the COVID-19 lockdown).
Definition of key terms used in breeding and colony management.
A high level introduction to best practice in mouse colony management, including confirming, archiving and maintaining mouse strains.
Archiving can provide a back-up to production colonies, minimise genetic drift, reduce the need for tick-over colonies and preserve valuable models.
Intermittent breeding should be used instead of constant mating to avoid unnecessary wastage of animals, whilst retaining the ability to breed an

For answers to more specific questions about colony management or breeding difficult strains you can email our dedicated advice service.
A webinar introducing the revised ARRIVE guidelines, the items in the ARRIVE Essential 10, and relevant resources.
Learn more about why the single use of needles should be standard practice and how to implement this in your facility.
Hear from champions based at facilities around the UK who have successfully implemented non-aversive mouse handling methods.
