It is important that visitors are not invited into our animal facilities (non-production animal rooms) unless they are of "green badge status". This means they have not had any rodent animal contact for 5 days prior. Visitors are never allowed into our production animal rooms. Individuals with pet rodents, or who may feed rodents to pet reptiles, may not enter our animal facilities at any time. These rules are in place as our mice are free of rodent diseases which may be found in other rodent colonies or pet rodents such as mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils or guinea pigs.
