The Animal House in the University of Patras is a fully equipped facility located in the ground floor of the Medical School where animals are kept in conditions with regulated ventilation, temperature, light and relevant humidity, monitored on a 24 hour basis. They are housed more than 3500 small animals including transgenic and knockout mice, rats and rabbits used for research purposes by members of the Patras Medical School. The facility includes a fully equipped surgical room and rooms equipped for metabolic experiments. High standards of biosafety are preserved in all rooms, while the use of animals follows the 3R guiding principles (replacement, reduction and refinement).
