Animal care management and expenses

 Animals brought into the facility will be cared for by the facility staff.
 Regarding animal care management, see this page for details.

Animal care costs

 Each day, the facility staff will check how many cages are being cared for.
 Based on this information, animal care costs will be calculated using the following formula.

  • Animal care costs = No. of cages X Days animals are cared for X Animal care unit price (Internal University use only)
 For an example of animal care costs, see here. (Internal University use only)


  1. Animals brought into the facility will check when the animals become available and will separate the animals into cages in the animal care room and thus animal care will officially begin. Afterwards, facility staff will begin animal care management.

  2. The animal care costs will be paid for by the researcher who ordered the animals. Pay the animal care costs to the Animal Facility.
    An invoice will be sent to each laboratory for a total of several months worth of animal care and the usage registration fee.

  3. Mice breeding and sampling etc. is not carried out by facility staff.
    See here for details, researchers must undertake breeding etc. on their own.
