Animal Tracking

ACHRI's Animal Tracking System (ATS) is designed to facilitate the management of the animal operations within the institute. The system extends the functionality of a paper-based system by providing a mechanism for tracking all animal facility costs associated with a particular protocol. ACHRI personnel can then generate accurate and timely invoices for the services they provide. By making the most of the technology available to the everyday user, it allows research support personnel to provide services with the highest standard of quality.
