Stormark JG. The new alternative laboratory for training and teaching [abstract]. ALTEX. 2011;28(Special Issue):234. Abstract 086.


The new alternative lab (AltLab) was opened in the summer of 2009 thanks to donations from the Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance and the University of Bergen. This has given an opportunity to teach and train students, researchers and animal technicians. The AltLab contain several animal models, multimedia programs and surgical items. In the AltLab, users can learn intubation, blood sampling and different surgery techniques like transplantation of veins and organs, and injections. The AltLab also contains a library for selected books, DVDs and multimedia programs.
