The biomedical research community has a clear mandate and moral obligation to provide the most suitable, comfortable and enhanced animal housing units possible. These animal containment units must comply with research protocols and address animal care and management requirements and regulations. Through the advancement of biomedical science, we’ve been able to enhance captive animals’ quality of life and ease their pain and suffering. We utilize all resources on the use of animal models to design and produce state-of-the-art animal housing units.
Designs for basic caging and research equipment were formulated during the 1940s and 1950s with an emphasis on housing density, security and sanitization. The standards were based on the weight and size of the animal, not species-specific behavioral needs. At the time, a large percentage of the animal care staff had an agricultural background.
