consecutive, 25 hours
Mon 17.05.21 - Thu 03.06.21, 09:00 - 16:00
The lecture and practical course “Basics in laboratory animal science” is for persons involved in the use of animals for scientific purposes to achieve competence in the sense of animal welfare and according the German Animal Welfare Law (TierSchG §7).
The local authority (LAVES) will provide a “certificate of exemption” only after successful attention of both theoretical and practical course.
The 2-day theoretical module “Basics in laboratory animal science” includes following topics: Legal aspects (including national legislation), basics in anatomy and physiology of different laboratory animal species, application of substances, anesthesia, operation and perioperative care, blood collection, euthanasia, basics in genetics, nomenclature and breeding management, husbandry, labelling, health monitoring and hygienic requirements.
Learning outcome will be assessed by a written exam.
In the 2-day practical “Basic Training Module” basic skills will be obtained: propaedeutics, handling (mouse, rat, guinea pig), anatomy and physiology, application and blood sample collection techniques, humane killing, sample collection, anesthesia, labelling of laboratory animals, documentation (please, bring your own lab coat with you).
