About FDA

Number of animal rooms where sentinel animal surveillance was conducted during the month

Dictionary: Laboratory animals are susceptible to a wide variety of bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections which can result in an altered animal model that consequently affects research. DVS monitors for various infectious disease agents to assure that healthy animals are maintained.

Extensive environmental and health monitoring activities will ensure pathogen exclusion from animal colonies, bedding, and feed in order to maintain high quality research. (1)
