As part of its continuing commitment to work with best-of-breed solutions for laboratory animal resources management, Virtual Chemistry, Inc. announced support for reading cage census data from Allentown's Wi-Com Sensus system. Utilizing the same RFID technology employed in other industries that manage high volume inventory, such as retail warehouses, Wi-Com Sensus reads an entire room of cages at once, eliminating time-consuming paper or barcode scans of individual cage locations. Now, high-volume RFID cage census data flows seamlessly into Mosaic Vivarium's powerful, web-based laboratory animal resources (LAR) management software. The combination advances Virtual Chemistry's vision of the data-driven LAR facility.
"Laboratory animal resources are a scientifically critical, financially expensive, and ethically sensitive tool for advancing medical knowledge. Mosaic Vivarium empowers organizations to utilize these resources as efficiently as possible. As part of our strategy to openly partner with proven hardware vendors, we're extremely excited to integrate with Allentown's Wi-Com Sensus to provide our customers with the means to drastically reduce the labor costs of LAR management," said Terry R. Coley, CEO of Virtual Chemistry Inc.
