Movements Within the Facility

Procedures should be designed to prevent the spread of allergens into the environment and to adjacent areas, such as corridors, offices, and rest areas. Transport of soiled cages from the animal room to the cleaning area should be done using a closed or covered system, preferably only in designated "dirty corridors." Animals should be transported in suitable transport cabinets equipped with filters that prevent the spread of allergens along corridors and in elevators. Single cages with animals should be transported using a filter top. Single cages should likewise be covered with a filter top when standing freely in laboratory or procedure rooms.
