Biomethodology Workshops

The Comparative Medicine & Animal Resources Centre (CMARC) offers workshop modules in basic and advanced areas of biomethodology for mice and rats. These modules satisfy all the current requirements of the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) with regards to practical training and cover basic animal handling and restraint, oral gavage, common injections, blood collection techniques, anesthesia and analgesia, aseptique technique, surgery, euthanasia and necropsy. For personnel who are extremely uncomfortable or emotional with animal handling, we offer individualized workshops in a less stressfull environment with a qualified instructor. The workshops modules are designed to meet the requirements of the CCAC for the training of research technicians, graduate students and faculty for proper animal care and use.

The CMARC veterinary staff also offers specialized training such as oral gavage, jugular vein venipuncture, intravenous injections (tail vein), endotracheal intubation, vascular cannulations, tumour transplants, ovariectomies, orchiectomies and many other techniques commonly used. Training for other species such as gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits may also be provided upon request. (See section on additional training)
