Dear Researchers,

Some commonly-used forms of sodium-pentobarbital-based euthanasia solutions (e.g. Eutha-6®) are scarce and/or not currently available from our usual suppliers.  If you use these agents in your research projects, please be mindful of the expiration date and amount on hand – do not wait until the last minute to place orders for replacement stock. 

If you run out of euthanasia solution or your stock is expired, please contact ULAR veterinarians at (949) 924-7788 for assistance and guidance. 

Thank you for your contribution to humane laboratory animal care at UCI.

Sincerely, on behalf of the IACUC,

Melanie Fabian, CPIA
