Rockville, Md. -- Institutions that use animals in research, teaching or testing can now receive an expert, independent evaluation of their animal care and use programs through AAALAC International (the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International). The new service is called a "Program Status Evaluation," and allows institutions to better assess the quality of all aspects of their animal research programs, including animal husbandry, veterinary care, institutional policies, and the facilities where animals are housed and used.
The above story is based on materials provided by AAALAC International. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
