We inform you of the transport box and transportation of LMO animals.

According to Article 26 of the 「TRANSBOUNDARY MOVEMENT, ETC. OF LIVING MODIFIED ORGANISMS ACT」,

if an animal is moved from the animal rooms in the Stem Cell Building to another building, a Transport box for LMO animals must be prepared.

When you transport an animal to the lab, a transport box must be used to prevent the animal’s escape.

Transport Box Specifications:

1. **Secure Lid:** The lid should resist easy opening or closing due to external shock.

2. **Unmodifiable Walls:** The walls of the box should remain intact and unmodified.

3. **Ventilation Hole:** Ensure there’s a ventilation hole for the animals to breathe.

4. **Prevent Escape:** The ventilation hole size should prevent mice from escaping.

Disinfection Protocol: – **Bio-Spot Disinfection:** Disinfect it using Bio-Spot.in room 108 and Repeat this process once a week.

– Attachments to transport box

① The label “Living Modified Organism” must be affixed. (Sticker supplied by Safety Team)

② It is recommended to indicate that the LMO is for transporting laboratory animals. (Prepare to attach actual name: each laboratory)

※ Notes on purchasing a transport box

※ The Bioefficacy Verification Laboratory will send you a link to the box you purchased to use as your own transport box. Please keep this in mind when purchasing an animal transport box. (However, if there is a box that meets the above conditions, you do not need to purchase it.)
