Welcome to LASed
The learning tool "LASed" is a subproject of .
In this application, you can compare parameters of physiology, hematology, breeding and housing in different laboratory animals.
There is no such thing as a particular species-specific respiratory rate. Measurements may vary with experimental conditions (e.g. breeding strain, age and health of the animal, handling, measurement technique, etc.). This is why the figures cited in the literature are often given as mean values and ranges (from X to Y). These values may also differ from one source to another. For this reason, this application will show every parameter as a range of all values taken from the literature:

Please note that all information is subject to change.
Body weight, body temperature, respiration rate, heart rate, caryotype, blood pressure, longevity
Blood volume, hemoglobin, hematocrit, glucose, serum proteins, bilirubin, BUN, creatinine, cholesterol
Sexual and breeding maturity, gestation period, litter size, weaning age
feed and water intake, housing temperature, relative air humidity, cage sizes
