    !!Description

    The Technology Platform of Life Sciences (PTSV) is dedicated to the housing and breeding of small animals (mice and rats) used for experimental research. The PTSV has a total area of 1180 m2 with two zones, conventional and specific pathogen free.
    It offers quality services for the accommodation, production and care of small animals and provides technical support to researchers.
    Standard operating procedures are in place to ensure quality of research and animal wellbeing.
