The best conditions for a high level research

 

Despite the development of alternative methods, animal testing is still necessary in research centres that wish to be at the forefront of research. IDIBELL's animal testing has the strictest controls of security and animal welfare.
 

Laboratory animals are used by IDIBELL researchers at two locations: the Bellvitge Animal Facility (located at the University of Barcelona campus, and specialized in large animals), and the IDIBELL Animal Facility, placed on the third floor of Duran and Reynals Hospital and focusing on the housing and care of small rodents in SPF conditions (basically immunodepressed and genetically modified)

IDIBELL Animal Facility covers an area of 700 m². It has only house mice, grouped together in two different types: genetically modified and immunodepressed. In both cases the animals are housed in cages with filters (in cupboards or on ventilated racks) that correspond with the conditions for care relating to their characteristics with the aim of avoiding any possible contamination that could affect them.

 

Quality assurance

 

IDIBELL Animal Facility fulfills the government regulations on the use of experimentation on animals.

 

Institutional statement on the use of animals in experimentation. The Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) has joined the Transparency Agreement on Animal Experimentation, promoted by the Confederation of Scientific Societies of Spain (COSCE), with the collaboration of the European Association for Animal Research (EARA) and issued on 20th September 2016

 

IDIBELL also has an Animal Experimentation Ethics Committee that oversees and evaluates all the experiments that involve animal use.

Thanks to its security and quality policy, IDIBELL Animal Facility obtained the full accreditation by the AAALAC International (Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International), a reference agency in the accreditation of animal research centres.

IDIBELL's Animal Facility is the only in Spain with this international accreditation.
