2020 Steam Shutdown Note:

The annual steam shutdown will take place June 26th through July 31st across UW’s campus and may result in a loss of hot water, which could affect researchers’ ability to properly sanitize their animal cages and equipment due to possible autoclave shutdown.  Researchers are expected to continue sanitizing their caging and related equipment during the steam shutdown, and may therefore be required to find other means of cage cleaning & sterilization.  The following guides offer possible solutions during this time to ensure that exceptional animal care & researcher safety is maintained.
