The behavioral staff also coordinates and oversees much of the provision of environmental enrichment, but relies largely upon the facility management and staff for its implementation. The DVR BEEP is successful in part because of this dynamic relationship. This chapter provides guidelines for the environment, housing, and management of laboratory animals used or produced for research, testing, and guidelines are applicable across species and are relatively general; additional information should be sought about how to apply them to meet the specific needs of any species, strain, or use (see Appendix A for references).

Here, we tested two magnetic-bead based systems for the enrichment and detection of rare tumor cells in concentrated blood products. For that, the defined numbers of cells from three pancreatic cancer cell lines were spiked in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNCs) concentrated in 1 mL, mimicking diagnostic leukapheresis (DLA) samples, and samples were processed for circulating tumor.

If we are bored or dissatisfied with our situation, we can change it. We have many resources available to us to enhance our lives.

EPA's goal in developing the guidelines is to create an efficient way for purchasers to easily identify environmentally preferable products. The Guidelines provide a transparent, fair, and consistent approach to selecting environmental performance standards and ecolabels to support the agency's mission and federal sustainable acquisition mandates. Suggested Guidelines for Primate Enrichment. The primate taxon includes a wide variety of species with an incredible range of abilities. From lemurs to chimpanzees, devising an enrichment program can seem a little daunting at first. The prosimians’ range of abilities can .
