Laura Walrave - Participant

Many of us who believe in the importance of aseptic rodent surgery have lived through the frustration of trying to implement rodent aseptic surgery in our programs because it seems that application of aseptic technique is so difficult to illustrate and implement. For years, I have in vain searched the internet and other sources for easy, well-illustrated materials to teach our investigators proper technique. The search is over! My frustration has led us to create easy to follow illustrations to help investigators, veterinarians, trainers and IACUCs everywhere to develop sound rodent aseptic surgical skills. This presentation will rely heavily on images and videos. The presenter will walk the audience through very simple and fun steps in the application of aseptic technique. Other practical rodent surgery tips will be discussed as time allows. Learning objectives: •Learn easy to apply aseptic techniques of rodent surgery. •Learn where to point others to sources where these techniques can be learned.
