Laboratory mouse. Laboratory mouse for use in animal experiments. Animals such as this are used to test the safety of non-medical substances (such as cosmetics or pesticides) or in medical experiments to test the effects of new drugs. Animals have also been used to produce vaccines and hormones such as insulin. Animal experimentation is controversial and alternatives are being developed. However, many animal experiments remain compulsory by law before new products can be released.
