This webinar will address the importance of microbiological screening of rodent colonies for maintaining reliable experimental outcomes. Mouse noroviruses, parvoviruses,
rodentibacters, helicobacters, pinworms and other agents tested in surveillance programs have recognized effects on research outcomes. This webinar will discuss their effects on different research areas, and the importance of microbial screening and
microbial exclusions to support research and research reproducibility.
