Test animals

Species:
rabbit
Strain:
New Zealand White
Details on test animals and environmental conditions:
Animal species: rabbit / White New Zealand (SPF)
Animal supplier: dr. K. Thomae GmbH, Biberach, Germany
Age of the animals: young adult animals
Animal identification: ear tattoo
Room temperature/ Relative humidity: the animals were housed in fully air-conditioned rooms. Central air-conditioning guaranteed a range of 20 -24 degrees Celsius for temperature and of 30 -70 % for relative humidity. There were no deviations from these ranges which influenced the results of the study.
Day/night rhythm: 12 h/12 h (6.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m./6.00 p.m. - 6.00 a.m.)
Type of cage: stainless steel wire mesh cages with grating,
No. of animals per cage: single housing
Bedding: no bedding in the cages; sawdust in the waste trays
Drinking water: about 250 ml tap water per animal per day
Diet: Kliba-Labordiaet 341, Klingentalmuehle AG, Kaiseraugst, Switzerland (about 130 g per animal per day).

Analysis of drinking water:
The drinking water is regularly assayed for chemical contaminants by the municipal authorities of Frankenthal and the Technical Services of BASF AG as well as for the presence of germs by a contract laboratory.

Analysis of feed:
The feed used in tue study was assayed for chemical and microbiological contaminants.
