Sentinel Health Program
Laboratory Animal Resources routinely monitors the mouse colonies in our vivariums for various bacteria, viruses, and parasites of importance to mouse health. If an excluded agent, such as mouse parvovirus, is diagnosed, investigators would be notified and special procedures put in place for further testing, containment, and/or eradication of that organism. Some agents tested for are not excluded at CSU because they have minimal health effects on the mice, for example mouse norovirus.
Please contact Jessica.Ayers@colostate.edu if you have any questions about our Sentinel Monitoring Program!
