NEW Transaction Slip Examples - MICE Only

To improve animal inventory control,  we redesigned the MOUSE Transaction Slips 

  • One slip to six slips - separate slip for each “transaction” (see examples)
  • Easy to complete
  • Only pertinent information obtained for each transaction
  • Accurate & timely completion are very important
  • Use in all facilities except Oakdale (implementation in late 2015/early 2016 when BRSF opens)
  • We appreciate your cooperation & feedback
