Colony Management Consultation

Colony Management Consultation

Managing mouse colonies is a time consuming and costly process, which becomes even more costly in the absence of a proper colony management plan. Furthermore, with technicians and post-docs rotating in and out of labs regularly, maintaining experienced personnel to manage your mouse colony can prove difficult. Ultimately, the lab may be overpaying due to the lack of focus that is required to achieve goals and to control costs.
