Mouse Colony Management

21 February 2011
We are please to announce the publication of a product overview for Growbase, a management system for organisations that use in-vivo models (Mus musculus) in life science research. Growbase includes functions for both researchers and colony managers.

Key Features Include:

  • Tracks each animal from birth to its fate, allowing reporting and analysis for individuals to both reduce administration and improve data management.
  • Tracks each breeding and the resulting litter, enabling reporting and analysis for groups of animals, which can ease reporting such as that required by regulators, including the home office.
  • Complex genotypes are recorded for each animal and are passed through to ease genotype specification of the offspring in a litter.
  • Research data is stored against animal records, thus automatically creating meta-data which improves data provenance and reduces errors.
  •  A plug-in system for data tools allows measurements to be acquired directly from stored data.
