Service Description

logoAnimalarioThe Laboratory Animal Facility is an area dedicated to the production and maintenance of experimental animals, aiding in research, essential techniques, and legal support for this duty. Most of the experimentation is carried out with genetically modified mice and zebra fish. Our animal facilities and equipment are specially designed for these models. The laboratory animal service provides a controlled environment for the animals, with periodic control of diet, water, temperature, air, housing, and husbandry conditions. The unit is separated into several areas: quarantine, conventional, and specific pathogen-free (SPF), depending on the microbiological status of the animals. We provide special housing conditions for conventional, genetically modified, and immunodeficient animals, depending on the experimental objectives. At the same time, a totally isolated biosafety area is dedicated to in vivo experiments using biological agents.

The animal facility staff gives service to laboratories for obtaining commercial lines and strains of animals, shipping animals for collaboration with other institutes, and maintenance, breeding, and generation of transgenic, knock-out and knock-in animals. These services allow control of the microbiological and genetic quality of the animals used in experimentation. The animal facility staff provides services for various techniques used in mouse research models. Veterinary staff gives research assistance in surgical techniques, selection of animal models, animal health surveillance, laboratory animal care, and animal well-being. We also organise courses to obtain accreditation for working with animals and manage colonies of genetically modified animals.

Our goal is to achieve research excellence following the 3R principles: reduction, refinement, and replacement of animal experiments.

Instalac

El Servicio de Animalario del CNB ocupa gran parte de la planta sótano del edificio, además de una zona aneja, separada físicamente de la instalación central, denominada ZONA S-100, concebida, por necesidades de espacio, como ampliación de la Zona de Barrera, para albergar el stock de animales generados en la Zona SPF del Animalario y con sus mismas características. La Instalación central está dividida en ZONAS claramente definidas, como son:

ZONA DE CUARENTENA que alberga dos áreas separadas: un área para Cuarentenas procedente de las Casas Comerciales Proveedoras y otra para los animales que proceden de las Importaciones desde otras Entidades o Laboratorios con los que se establecen Colaboraciones por parte de los Investigadores del Centro.

ZONA CONVENCIONAL en la que están integradas:

Zona de Stock de ratones (S-90)

Zona de Servicios: (Lavado y Esterilización de material)

Almacenes y dentro de estos está ubicado el Irradiador de Cesio

ZONA DE BARRERA dedicada a cría, mantenimiento y generación de animales transgénicos, knock-out y knock-in.

ZONA EXPERIMENTAL (P2), es una instalación independiente al resto del Animalario, realmente es otro animalario dentro de la instalación total, dotada de autoclaves y sala de lavado independientes al resto del animalario, que es donde se procede a realizar protocolos experimentales.

 

 

El Servicio de Animalario del CNB da soporte a la investigación, hospedando los animales necesarios para los estudios que realizan los distintos laboratorios del Centro y ocasionalmente de usuarios externos o usuarios que tras su estancia con nosotros, están en proceso de marcha a otras instituciones de Investigación.

Los Servicios prestados a los distintos Investigadores son facturados a cada Laboratorio, en facturas mensuales, según la tarifa de precios vigente: TARIFAS

Para el correcto funcionamiento del Servicio se han elaborado unas PNTs (Practicas Normalizadas de Trabajo) para que los usuarios tengan el adecuado conocimiento de cómo realizar los distintos procedimientos para trabajar y relacionarse con el Servicio de Animalario del CNB. Estos PNTs se irán incrementando en número paulatinamente y actualizándose con arreglo a las necesidades que surjan.

Una de las maneras en la que los usuarios se relacionan con el Servicio de Animalario, es mediante el envío de formularios y solicitudes por correo electrónico, que se priorizan por su orden de llegada a manos del Servicio. Todos los Formularios y solicitudes se pueden descargar desde el siguiente enlace: Solicitudes y Formularios.

Por otro lado, en el siguiente enlace pueden encontrar protocolos de trabajo que les puede orientar en algunas actuaciones: Protocolos de trabajo.

 

 

Es importante conocer la última legislación elaborada en relación con el uso de animales en experimentacíón y otros fines científicos:

 

  • REAL DECRETO 1201/2005, de 10 de octubre, sobre protección de los animales utilizados para experimentación y otros fines científicos.
  • LEY 32/2007, de 7 de noviembre, para el cuidado de los animales, en su explotación, transporte, experimentación y sacrificio.
  • Real Decreto 53/2013, de 1 de febrero, por el que se establecen las normas básicas aplicables para la protección de los animales utilizados en experimentación y otros fines científicos, incluyendo la docencia.
