Large Animal Facilities - "The Macro / Micro Isolator"

Scott Stirton, Smith Carter


The research, development and technologies of the small animal micro-isolators dedicated to rodents, have yet to evolve at the large animal housing level. Mr. Stirton in his presentation titled the " The Macro- 'Micro Isolator' will outline the environmental protection considerations embodied in containment and housing strategies for large animals. Large animal containment facility design solutions are predicated on the notion of environmental, animal, and personnel safety. Safeguarding the people working with large animals, the animal themselves and the environment requires operational, functional and technical prowess to achieve success. Discussion will focus on the concerns of airborne, carcass and water contamination and sterilization strategies.
