Infectious bacteria in laboratory animals can affect the health of both animals and man. They also have a decisive influence on the results of animal tests. The basic requirement for carrying out useful and reproducible experiments on a minimum of animals is the use of laboratory animals which are free of undesirable micro-organisms (specific pathogen free mice or rats).
