Our institution animal house facility was established in the year 2009 and registered by CPCSEA- New Delhi in the year 2010 in the Department of Biotechnology, at SVCE. The institution animal house is recognized for the purpose of Research Education using laboratory Small animals. The re-registration of animal house was done in the year 2015 and 2017. The CPCSEA- New Delhi approval number for the Institute animal house is 1398/PO/Re/S/10/CPCSEA for Research Education purpose. Similarly, the Institutional Animal Ethical Committee (IAEC) of SVCE was constituted in the year 2009 and the committee is reconstituted from time to time in the year 2010, 2015 and 2017. The IAEC committee monitoring the functions of animal house facility every 6 months in a year and inspection report is often being submitted to CPCSEA- New Delhi by CPCSEA nominee every year.
The institution animal house has excellent facility to handle the small animals and it has facilities such as quarantine room, rabbit room, mice-rat room, procedure room and washing room. The animal house is maintained properly with air condition facility and observation of moisture and air condition is noted by automatic machine. The animals cages are frequently washed, autoclaved and animals are kept in the husk bedding in the cages. The pure mineral water is provided for the small animals with pellet foods. All cages are properly labelled indicating the investigators name, the purpose of investigation and the details about the animals. The animal house is daily cleaned and maintained with proper sanitation. This is monitored daily by Department Scientist in-charge animal house facility approved by CPCSEA- New Delhi. As per UGC guidelines no dissection is carried out using laboratory small to demonstrate for undergraduate students. This is separately monitored by Institution Dissection Monitoring committee constituted in the year 2012. The animals are used only for research education to carryout the experiment to find the new drugs for various types of experimental studies as pre-clinical study. For graduate students the procedures such as handling of laboratory small animals, immunization of animals and collection of antisera is done every year with the approval of IAEC members. For research education project the protocol is often submitted every year to the IAEC committee members and during the meeting the protocols are scrutinized by them and the members decide whether the submitted protocol have to be approved or not based on ethical aspects and usage of number of small animals for the protocol to be sanctioned.
