Despite the fact that the majority of research animals are rodents, the trainers at the Research Animal Resources Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found training material on the proper handling of mice and rats in biomedical research to be limited. So, they developed videos, narratives, pictures, and text to teach common handling, injection, and bleeding techniques.
The resulting DVDs and supporting manuals are complete training resources and refreshers for lab animal veterinarians, veterinary technicians, animal care staff, trainers, and researchers working with mice and rats.
Each DVD Provides:
Narrated video clips that demonstrate and describe each procedural techniqueEasy navigation to desired techniques, including handling/transfer, oral gavage, blood draw, restraint, injection, and ear notching and tagging
Each Manual Includes:
Full text narratives and procedural handouts with full-color illustrations of each technique included on the DVD-including purpose and application of the procedure, recommended skills, and necessary suppliesSupplementary chapters that provide normative data for the laboratory rat and mouse

Currently, there is a paucity of training material for experimental techniques in laboratory rodents, particularly audiovisual material. The manuals and accompanying DVDs will be of great interest to students, technicians, veterinarians, and investigators. Importantly, the straightforward approach taken in both the printed manual and DVD will be seen as an excellent tool for non-English speaking personnel.

Persons (students of animal technology) can watch these videos to 'get the picture' and then practice with an experienced individual. It is a good refinement step of the 3Rs.... I will be very excited to have these manuals to use as training items with my students and as reference resources in our animal facility.
