Institut für Labortierkunde (LTK) - Institute of Laboratory Animal Science

Standard Operating Procedures

We publish all our animal-related Standard operating procedures (SOP) for your usage.
Our SOP are all verified through the animal welfare officers of the University of Zurich, the animal wellfare commission of the canton of Zurich and the cantonal veterinary office. The animal permit numbers are indicated so that you may refer to it.
Knowledge about best practises improves continuously. Hence, you should always check whether our SOP are up to date. Also, you may be asked by your animal welfare officer, the animal wellfare commission, the veterinary office or other legal entities (dependent on where you live) to amend your protocol with respect to new knowledge or differing legal requirements.
If you see mistakes in our SOP or have suggestions to improve them, please contact us. We are grateful for all help.

If you wish, you may send us your SOP to support our effort for a sharing culture in animal sciences. Please include animal licence registration number and running period.
