PRLog - Jan. 13, 2013 - The Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI) www.vetbiotech.com (http://www.vetbiotech.com/),  is proud to announce their Aseptic and Precise Surgical Techniques in Rodents webinar for January 16th at 1:30 pm. This webinar is part of a series of 41 separate webinars on varied topics in Laboratory Animal Medicine for 2013.

Precise and aseptic surgical techniques are essential components of a successful surgery. In spite of this, not all aspects of aseptic and delicate technique are considered when planning for rodent surgery, thus leading to questionable outcomes. Implementation of these principles into a rodent surgical plan is especially challenging because there is still a misconception that rodents are less susceptible to infections. In addition, gentle and precise technique requires appropriate training, equipment and instrumentation. This webinar is intended to teach the skills needed to improve surgical outcomes and improve research data in rodents.

This webinar will cover;
Current regulations related to rodent surgery, pertinent human and veterinary literature, rodent aseptic practices, precise and gentle surgical technique, competency assessment of rodent aseptic technique, guidance to rodent surgeons to formulate informed decisions regarding aseptic technique, appropriate tissue handling and gentle technique to maximize good surgical outcomes, improve research data, and ensure animal welfare.



Who Should Attend?

This interactive webinar is designed for any personnel involved in surgical training and/or performing surgery. This includes but is not limited to scientists, veterinary technicians, veterinarians, technical support staff and IACUC members.

This webinar meets the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS), Canadian Association for Laboratory Animal Science (CALAS), and Academy of Surgical Science (ASR) requirements for Continuing Education Units. Each participant will receive Certificates of Attendance.
