LARS Phase Overview

The Lab Animal Resource Software (LARS) project oversees the release the second module of LAMPS: eAnimal Ordering. LARS consists of three phases:

Phase 3 – Electronic census tracking January 2024 – TBD

  • Cage card deactivation – Cage cards must be turned in to a deactivation collection box to
    stop billing for that cage.
  • Other elements of Phase 3 will be rolled out building-by-building, scheduled to conclude
    in 2025:

    • New barcoded cage cards with an RFID tag placed in facilities.
    • DCM moves from a manual cage count process to scanning rooms for all RFID

Phase 2 (Complete) – Researchers transition to eAnimal Ordering July 6, 2021

  • Animal procurement is initiated in LAMPS.
  • Researchers have access to animal numbers.

Phase 1 (Complete) – DCM transitions to eAnimal Ordering May 1, 2020

  • Barcoded cage cards placed in facilities.
  • New split/wean log.
  • DCM Procurement re-enters Marketplace orders in LAMPS.

eProtocol Module

The eProtocol module of LAMPS went live in 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.
