GRANADOS-ZUNIGA, Jorge. Using Experimental Animal in Biomedical Research in Costa Rica. Acta méd. costarric [online]. 2010, vol.52, n.3, pp.134-136. ISSN 0001-6002.

The progress in medical and biological research has relied heavily on the use of experimental animals. Given the importance animals have had historically as biological reagents, the science of experimental animals was created and is consolidated in biomedical research. It seeks to obtain biologically standardized animals by selecting their collective anatomical, physiological, ecological and health characteristics.

Keywords : animals; experimentations; biomedical investigation; Costa Rica.
