Based on the vision to carry out animal tests for medical research with science, safety, and ethics in mind, a new facility was built in Suita on Nov. 15, 1989 and came into use in 1990.
This 7-story building, with a total floor area of 6,348 sq. meters, faces the north side of the Research building of the Graduate School of Medicine.
This facility uses guidelines for the use of experimental animal sciences of Europe and North America as the minimum standard. Furthermore, we gathered the best in the field of experimental animal sciences and equipped the facility with state-of-the art devices and equipment to have it ready for the future progress in medical sciences. Our thorough energy-saving measures reduce the burden on the users, and various types of experimental breeding chambers are made available to support the goals of the researchers.

The main parts of the facility are controlled by the central management system.
Only a small number of people are required to efficiently manage the central monitoring room, central cleaning and sterilization room, HVAC room, medical cylinder room, inspection room and full automatic feed-water system.
Access to each room is monitored and controlled by the central management system. Various disease-model animals are raised, thus contributing to the pathological findings of diseases as well as development of cures for intractable diseases.
