Granite Cage Card System

All cages at the AVS biomedical facilities are identified using the Granite Cage Card System. The Granite cages are linked to billing for your project and your IACUC protocol.

All researchers and their staff should be familiar with the Granite Cage Card System SOP to ensure proper billing and for census management purposes.
