The Experimental Animal Center (EAC) of IBTS is located at the ground floor of Jockey Club School of Chinese Medicine Building. EAC is committed to ensuring the humane care and use of all animals associated with its research and teaching programs. EAC currently equips 6 laboratory animal breeding rooms that offer independent air condition system with high efficiency air filter and full air exchange rate, and that are in compliance with the international standards and regulations for breeding environment and laboratory room of murine. EAC provides services and resources needed by investigators to accomplish the animal research of bone-related disease and assist in providing training in laboratory animal care and use to technical personnel, students and faculty.
