Animal Research Involving Hazardous Chemicals

If your animal protocol involves hazardous chemicals (including nanomaterials), research staff may be exposed to these hazardous chemicals during preparation, handling, and animal dosing. These substances may be excreted and/or secreted from the animal and, therefore, be present in the animal’s bedding in extremely low concentrations. Animal husbandry staff and veterinarians may be exposed to these hazardous chemicals or their toxic metabolites during cage handling or when handling medicated water or feed.

See below for details about animal protocols involving hazardous chemicals. If you need to complete an SOP, please use this SOP template.
