All activities related to the maintenance and use of laboratory animals are required by national and international standards and regulations. In our work, we operate in accordance with applicable legal regulations and the latest guidelines of non-governmental organizations.
Our unit is equipped with an innovative animal keeping system (IVC – individual ventilated cage). The living space for each individual complies with the requirements of national and international directives and standards. The ventilation system is equipped with devices that maintain constant temperature and humidity, and ensure a constant number of air changes. With the animals well-being in mind, each cage is equipped with elements to enrich the environment.
3 „R” :Replacement, Reduction, Refinement
In our work, we use the principles of improvement and ethical use of laboratory animals described as “3R: Replacement, Reduction, Refirement”.
Whenever possible, we use the Replace method. The tests are then carried out by the Konmex Biolabs In Vitro Research Team. However, when it is not possible, we limit the number of animals used in experiments as much as possible and try to use methods that reduce animal suffering and improve animal welfare.
