Mouse handling: Tutorial

This video tutorial was produced in 2016 to show technical staff and researchers how to handle mice using non-aversive methods. It is based on research by Professor Jane Hurst and colleagues at the University of Liverpool.

The 18-minute tutorial covers:

  • The impact of handling on anxiety and stress in mice
  • Handling techniques to improve welfare and reliability of mouse studies
  • Best practice in handling mice by different methods
  • How to incorporate best handling practices into routine husbandry and experimental procedures
