Compendia in Laboratory Animal Science
The Laboratory Animal Unit at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (now part of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences) produced a 200-page compendium in laboratory animal science, in Norwegian and English versions. Topics covered included legislation, ethics, comparative biology, genetics, diseases and health monitoring, the influence of environmental factors, anaesthesia, analgesia and euthanasia, design of animal experiments and alternative methods.
The Unit also produced a Norwegian-language compendium in Laboratory Animal Science for Fish Researchers in Norwegian in 1999. The compendium was translated into English and large parts of it were updated in 2010-11, with funding provided by Norecopa.
Much of the information in these compendia has been updated and incorporated into the text here on Norecopa's website. In particular, please see the PREPARE guidelines for planning animal research and testing. We also recommend use of the menus at the top of each webpage.
For those who wish paper versions of the compendia, please contact Norecopa. For copyright reasons there are not available in electronic form.
