FSVO symposium on alternatives to carbon dioxide on 5 June 2019 in Bern

The Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office will host the 3R Symposium on Alternatives to Carbon Dioxide on 5 June 2019 at the Campus Liebefeld in Bern. After an introduction on the challenges, speakers will present a systematic review of carbon dioxide in mice and rats as well as the revised euthanasia guideline published by the American Veterinary Medical Association. The organisers then plan to present a first draft of a research strategy to replace the use of carbon dioxide with alternatives for all animal species and all purposes, and participants will be able to comment.
