“There are very few programs available like mLIMS, and these other few are either too complicated or too simple to use.”

Haluk Yuzugulu, PhD, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School

“We have been using mLIMS for over 7 years and are very pleased with our choice. The user-friendly features of this animal colony software program have been especially helpful in the transition from our old mouse colony maintenance system. Also, the customer service from BioInfoRx has been excellent!”

Chan Bouribon, Lab Manager, Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute, Northwestern University

“We have more than three transgenic mice colonies in our lab. We had a hard time managing each colony well. It is a challenge for us to consistently record data. In the last 6 years, we have been using mLIMS mouse colony software. It is very easy to enter and display mice data. The developer responded very promptly to resolve our questions. I love to use it every day. Thank you for mLIMS, my colonies are secure.”

Sung-Hyeok Hong, DVM, PhD, Georgetown University
