APCF Standard Operating Procedures

APCF has Guidelines & Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) which require all users of APCF to follow. Please make yourself familiar with all Guidelines & SOPs relevant to your activities within APCF.

The Guidelines & SOPs are numbered for ease of searching and filing and all have a prefix letter:

A: Animal procedures

C: Animal care

H: Health monitoring

L: Laboratory procedures

O: Operations (including gowning)

S: Safety (including occupational health)

Explanation of the prefix letters is as follows:

A is the prefix for Guidelines/SOPs that involve experimental use of animal models such as collecting blood, injecting, killing or treating animals,

C is the prefix for Guidelines/SOPs that involve handling animals (but not doing experimental procedures on them) whether in IVC or in cages or individually,

H is the prefix for Guidelines/SOPs that involve bacterial/viral monitoring of animals, and

L is the prefix for Guidelines/SOPs that involve laboratory procedures such as environmental monitoring and do not directly involve animals

O is the prefix for any Guidelines/SOPs that involve operational procedures and activities not handling animals,

S is the prefix for any Guidelines/SOPs that involve occupational health and safety

The number of Guidelines/SOPs will continue to grow as APCF standardises its activities and also existing Guidelines/SOPs will be updated as circumstances dictate, so please keep your self up-to-date by regularly visiting this page
