Microbiological cleaning

Infection-free animals are needed to obtain highly reliable test results. Two major principles in studies involving recombinant genes are “physical containment” and “protection from infection.” “Microbiological cleaning” is advisable before introducing mice or rats with no evident microbiological background to your facilities. Cleaning can be done at CLEA Japan, Inc. using either “reproductive engineering, such as fertilized egg implantation into the oviduct” or “spontaneous mating → cesarean section.”
