Animal Welfare

PolyGene's mouse facility matches highest health standards and ethics.


Animal Welfare is our middle name. Our mice are enormously valuable, and we use every means to improve their holding conditions and breeding environment:

  • Impeccable health (see below)
  • Best-trained personnel attending daily project meetings
  • Optimal enrichment, including thick bedding, 2 types of nesting material (nestlets and aspen fibers), gnawing sticks and gnawable housing in each cage
  • Exchange with and membership in the Basel Declaration Society
