The Laboratory Animal Service (LAS) is the University of Hawai'i support unit responsible for the care of vertebrate animals used in training and research. The University and the federal governments charge LAS to ensure appropriate and humane housing, care, and use of animals.

LAS provides instruction to investigators, technicians, and students in appropriate research techniques as they relate to animals. Assistance is provided to investigators in techniques for animal handling. Polyclonal antibody production is also provided as a service to any group needing antibodies.

The use of vertebrate animals for research and training is overseen at the University by the Animal Care and Use Committee which is composed of veterinarians, researchers, and local community representatives. The committee reviews proposals for research and training, inspects facilities, and considers issues of humane animal use.
