Introducing new bedding material

To the users of the Department's facilities:

The Department has decided to change the bedding material for mice.

The new bedding material

Happi-Mats will be introduced instead of the Enviro dri bedding material we currently use. Please read more about this bedding material on the supplier’s webpage: 

Happi-Mat product description.

The reason for this change is that it is easier to inspect the mice in the cage with this bedding material, and it is easier to standardize and dispense the amount of bedding material.

We will change to Happi Mats from May, and if some researchers wish to continue a present study with the Enviro dri material please inform Janne Koch and the technicians in the unit(s) where the mice are housed.

The Animal Experiments Inspectorate have approved Happi Mats as bedding material on a visit where they inspected cages in which we tested the material, and our local animal welfare group has also approved the material.

Questions regarding the above should be directed at Facility Manager Janne Koch.
