New Apps for Animal Management and In Vivo Studies
Alleviating Data Management Pain Points in Animal Studies
Animal studies are foundational in research. They allow us to determine efficacy and toxicity, and give us close approximations for human models in drug metabolism, cognitive function, and everything in between. The execution of these types of studies is often spread throughout many groups within an organization, and spans many data management and informatics systems.
New applications are now available in the Platform for Science Marketplace to help teams to work and communicate more effectively from IACUC protocol management through in vivo study data capture. Organizations can use the apps to move seamlessly from study design, to IACUC records, to animal ordering and animal measurements including body weight and health observations. From there, users can assign animals to experiments, and track measurements over time in the presence of treatments or other conditions. All information is stored and accessed from the same database – the Platform for Science – providing one centralized location for managing end-to-end data for animal work and protocols.
The In Vivo Studies apps include:
Animal Facility Management
Body Weight Studies
Preclinical Study Management
This group of applications can be used individually to support animal studies, or together to provide a more comprehensive in vivo experiment solution. Marketplace applications work out-of-the-box with your existing Platform for Science installation.
