Over the last decades the number of animals used for scientific purposes has increased dramatically. Not all of these animals participate in an actual experiment. A great number of animals is also required for the collection of tissue and organs to perform cell culture studies or to establish new in vitro test systems. Others are needed for educational purposes. In most instances, only one or two organs are needed while the rest of the animal body is discarded.
AniMatch is an online platform enabling scientists to connect and share organs and tissue of sacrificed animals. This inspires responsible use of a valuable biological resource and reduces animal usage effectively.
