Lab Animal Management & Protocol System (LAMPS) Project

Oversees the implementation of the LAMPS eProtocol and LARS modules

This page provides project-related updates to the implementation of LAMPS’s two modules: eProtocol and LARS. See the LAMPS landing page to login and find resources.

LARS Module

The Lab Animal Resource Software (LARS) module is the second phase of the LAMPS Project. It rolls out in phases during 2020.

Phase 1 – DCM transitions to LARS May 1, 2020

  • Each cage is identified by a unique barcode.
  • DCM-provided cage cards display this barcode. These new cards are on all cages billed by DCM.
  • Splits and Weans – An updated, combined split/wean log is used to establish barcodes for all new cages.
  • Transfers – A new question appears on the animal transfer form asking if animals have previously been used in research.

Phase 2 – Animal ordering moves to LARS MyDay Go-Live Date (July 1, 2021)

  • The MyDay Project is a separate university effort to replace the current systems used for Human Resources, Finance, and Student Administration (MarketPlace, AIS, FIS, HRMS, etc…).
  • Animal ordering will transition to LARS and eliminate ordering through MarketPlace. This will be launched, and is contingent on, when the MyDay project goes live.

Phase 3 – Electronic census tracking Timeline TBD

  • Electronic census will streamline manual processes including transfer requests. Electronic census will be implemented building-by-building over the course of several months. The timeline for Phase 3 is under development.


eProtocol Module

The eProtocol module of LAMPS went live on July 29, 2019. It replaced eSirius as the system in which to submit, review, and approve animal use protocols and amendments. Visit the LAMPS Website to login, access resources, and read frequently asked questions.
