As FLSC updates, modifies, and refines standard operating procedures, we will make available those changes to the researchers at the university. To facilitate the dissemination of this information the revised SOPs will be available in pdf format and printable from this page. Click on the links below to access the updated materials of your choice. New and updated policies will also be available as printed copies at the information center just inside the FLSC foyer for a 1 - 3 month period.
The following updated SOP reflects a risk based approach to animals infected with viral vectors and transplanted with tissues infected with viral vectors.
