IACUC-endorsed Animal Technical Procedures Now Available

To facilitate the preparation of Animal Use Protocols, UGA’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) has recently endorsed a variety of commonly used technical procedures for basic animal research.

To facilitate the preparation of Animal Use Protocols, UGA’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) has recently endorsed a variety of commonly used technical procedures for basic animal research.  Details of these procedures are available on the Animal Care and Use website at https://ovpr.uga.edu/oacu/procedures

Abstracts of these procedures can be cut and pasted directly into an Animal Use Protocol.  Since the procedures are pre-reviewed, this step will reduce the time associated with regulatory evaluation.  The abstracts for use in protocols can be found at https://ovpr.uga.edu/oacu/procedures/#abstracts

These procedures are not meant to serve as the complete listing of acceptable techniques.  Other, equally appropriate techniques, can be similarly employed with IACUC approval.  Any deviations from the endorsed procedures or any alternate procedures should be discussed with the Attending Veterinarian.

Additional procedures and related-species are planned for future editions and updates to this list.  For questions related to these procedures, please contact the Research Compliance Training Coordinator at anitrain@uga.edu
