Over the last year, the Office of the Vice Provost of Research (OVPR) has been going through a selection process to select a software package to replace our aging ARIES, POLARIS, SHEPHERD, and ACCR systems.
After reviewing dozens of possible packages, we are pleased to announce that we have selected a-tune’s tick@lab software suite (https://www.a-tune.com/). This software will include both IACUC and animal operations functionality – everything from drafting and approving protocols, through requisitioning new animals, through animal care to the end of the animal’s life.
Over the next several months, we will begin configuration of the new software with plans for rollout in the latter half of 2024.
We are excited to introduce this new software and to continue our status as one of the world’s leading research institutions.
