Streamline your operations, enhance your compliance and more with Mosaic Vivarium.

Managing a diverse range of animal models for laboratory research presents unique challenges, especially when striving to meet compliance. While mice and rats are widely used, aquatic species like zebrafish and axolotls, along with avian models like zebra finches, play a crucial role in research. 

Mosaic Vivarium stands out as a comprehensive solution adept at handling the nuanced requirements of these varied species.

Lab animal software has traditionally focused on rodents due to their predominance in research. However, Mosaic Vivarium is equipped to manage the distinct needs of aquatic species and birds. 

For instance, zebrafish and axolotls—known for laying large numbers of eggs—necessitate a database approach that can manage large populations efficiently while maintaining individual tracking for Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) compliance. Similarly, tracking zebra finches extends to eggs, hatchlings, and fledglings, requiring a detailed record of each stage.

Mosaic Vivarium: A Versatile and Comprehensive Approach

Mosaic Vivarium addresses these challenges by offering a unified platform that caters to the specific needs of various lab animals. Our software’s versatility lies in its ability to manage different housing and reproductive workflows, from rodent litters to avian clutches and aquatic species’ tank management.
