Barrier D at the Wallenberg laboratory
The Barrier D at the Wallenberg laboratory is a resource for short-term and mid-term maintenance of mice in experiments. This facility is not intended for expansion of mouse colonies.
To house mice, there is no need of setting up production breeding via re-derivation of animals. The housing area has access to the standard animal laboratories (dissection, monitoring etc) but also access to a virus lab where experiments using viral administration of genetic material can be conducted.
