Deodorizing effect of ozone was investigated comparing two types of compact ozonizing apparatus made on an experimental basis. The concentrations of ammonia and trimethylamine were examined as an indicator for deodorizing effect of ozone in animal rooms of rats and guinea pigs at laboratory animal facilities of three different universities. Both of the ozonizing apparatus were able to remove ammonia and trimethylamine in animal rooms, with no significant difference in the performance of the two apparatus.
