A team from the College of Science wants to improve the restraint devices used during injections of the greater wax moth larvae, a common laboratory animal. Injecting laboratory animals can be dangerous for researchers due to accidental needlesticks containing pathogenic microorganisms. In PLOS ONE, the team published designs for two new devices that reduce the handling of the larvae, protect against accidental needlestick injuries and maintain a high rate of successful injections. The devices are being used in the Rowley lab to help develop novel antifungal drugs to fight invasive fungal disease.
