Animal facility of the Martinsried Max Planck Institutes
The main task of the animal facilities is to house and breed various animal species and strains according to the needs of the scientists working at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology and the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry.
Only healthy animals can meet the requirements of research. Therefore, the Animal Facility makes sure that the housing and handling of laboratory animals is carried out under high hygienic levels and according to the natural needs of each species. The quality of these high standards is also controlled by an Animal Welfare Officer.
In addition, the following services are available to the scientists:
- Immunization service
- Advice and support
The main species (> 90 percent) are mice, rats and zebrafish. Most of the laboratory animals used in scientific projects are bred and raised in the Animal Facility.
