Procurement of Animals from Non-Approved Sources

Procurement from Non-Approved Sources, e.g. Investigators at Other Universities

If you have IACUC approval to procure animals from a non-approved source or a non-approved vendor, e.g., another university, you must complete an on-line request form at RSS (click on Comparative Medicine, Order Non-Approved Vendor). Comparative Medicine will respond to your request as soon as possible.

Do not make any arrangements to ship any animals to UNMC. These arrangements must be coordinated by Comparative Medicine only after the current health status of the animals is determined. Approval to ship animals to UNMC may take weeks to months depending on the health status of the animals at origin. All unauthorized shipments of animals to UNMC will be rejected and returned to sender.

Please contact the Comparative Medicine office, 402-559-4034 if you have questions or need additional information.
