The Science & Technology Center for Experimental Animal of Jiangxi University of TCM and Jiangxi Provincial Production Base of Experimental Mice and Ratsarea trinity of public platform for teaching and research services, a trinity of experimental animal production, scientific research and experiments and the safety evaluation of new drugs.
Its predecessor is the Experimental Animals Supply Room of Jiangxi University of TCM. It was built in Yang Ming campus in October 2001 with a total area of 300 square meters barrier environment of animal production and animal experiment. In 2005, it was awarded "experimental animals use license" and "experimental animal production license" by Science and Technology Department of Jiangxi Province and became the institution of providing sanitary experimental mice and rats in Jiangxi province.
The center covers an area of 9,250 square meters and its construction area is 5,837 square meters. More than 66 million yuan has been invested, of which more than 30 million yuan was for instruments and equipment.
