Abstract

The Jackson Laboratory animal colonies present a unique challenge for the design and operation of an animal changing station that maximizes protection of animal health and welfare while also protecting the health and safety of the animal caretaker. The authors describe the modification of a fixed ventilated changing station for improved animal health, reduced ergonomic strain, and decreased allergen exposure.
