Lab Animal Technician Week

International Laboratory Technician Week is Jan. 28-Feb. 3.  This is an opportunity for researchers to say “Thank you” for the invaluable assistance the FLSC technicians provide.

Animal Orders and Procedure Requests

FLSC has gone paperless for animal orders and animal procedure requests.  All animal orders and procedure requests will now be placed through the CORES system.  This change is in keeping with the University’s effort to increase efficiency, simplify billing activity and maintain better documentation of services.  Please contact Gwen Stayback at 1 6085 if you have any questions regarding the use of the system.
