Animal Core Facility

Laboratory Animal Facility is a component of campus animal resources that provides care for laboratory animals for investigators in the department of Brain Science at DGIST. It is dedicated to the humane use of animals in research and teaching.

  1. The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) - The IACUC reviews protocols, and the animal care and use program, and monitors related activities to ensure compliance with standards and regulatory requirements. The IACUC includes scientists, veterinarians, and administrative staffs.
  2. Animal housing rooms - It has capacity to house the laboratory mouse and rats in a separate room.

Services are provided on a fee-for-service basis and detailed for investigators in a monthly billing in a manner that meets grant and contractual administrative standards. Brain Science is committed to a certified program for the care of laboratory animals used in biomedical research and testing. The facility provides for separation of species, separation/containment for experimental conditions in a bio-containment environment, and designated space for various functions. Specifically, the facility includes the following:

  • Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) zone with airshowers and pass-rooms
  • Innovive modern system with disposable cages and individually ventilated animal caging (IVC) rack
  • Specialized procedure rooms
  • Species-specific animal rooms with isolation and containment facilities
  • Surgical suite for aseptic surgery
  • Laboratory for specimen handling and the performance of necropsy
  • Histology laboratory
  • Multiple biological safety cabinets for specimen containment
  • Specialized area for transgenic, gene knockout, and immune-deficient mice and rats
  • Large volume, high vacuum pass-through autoclave for decontamination of waste and other autoclaving needs
