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. More information will follow over the coming weeks.
