Single User

In this mode, only one user can access the system. It is good for labs with only one researcher responsible for animal information tracking. A single user account contains all features except Projects, which is designed for multi-user groups. Account sharing is not recommended for audit trail and tasks; if you have more than one user, a group account will meet those needs.

Group User

In this mode, multiple users can access the system simultaneously. Each user has an independent account with permissions set by the group manager. Whenever a record is updated, mLIMS will show who made the last changes. The system can also summarize the number of cages and animals for each user.
