2) Infection control test with VIC System
As shown in figure below, expansion of infection was checked by raising infected mice and non-infected mice in the adjoining
cages on each of the VIC-system racks and the conventional racks in the pasteurella infected raising room. Expansion
of infection was observed in the cages on the conventional racks. However, no expansion was observed in the cages on
the VIC-system racks, as shown below.
VIC system: Non-infected (0 of 28 mice or 0 of 7 cages)
Conventional racks: Infected (8 of 28 mice or 3 of 7 cageds)
