Yep it's pretty Gross.

Please note these may not be techniques that TeamG use and in many cases there is no need to perfuse (replace the blood with another fluid such as a fixative) a living mouse to achieve the desired effect, this can be done after humane killling/death.

  1. "...and in many cases there is no need..." Please don't tell me that you sometimes have to do this with living mice...

    1. Some people start perfusion in living mice as found in this paper which is open source, not us. Remove brain in a living mouse no.
