- Water (ad libitum): Tap water from municipal supply
- Acclimation period: 14 days prior to study start under laboratory conditions.

Water was regularly analysed for contaminants, detailed information on the diet was provided by the supplier. Water and diet used in the present study were not considered to adversely affect the purpose or integrity of the study.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

Controlled environment, environmental conditions were:
- Ventilation, air changes per hour: 15-20
- Temperature (°C): 20 +/- 3°C
- Relative Humidity (%): 30 to 65%
- Photoperiod (artificial lighting): 12 hrs day / 12 hrs night
Relative humidity and temperature at times slightly exceeding the upper target limits of 70% and 23°C, respectively were not considered to have compromised the integrity or validity of the study.
