Vivarium Census System – Cage Census Software
VCS is an RFID and barcode cage census software package that allows animal research facilities to perform an accurate cage census in minutes. With a .NET architecture, RFID labels, and a portable handheld reader, VCS lets you:
- Perform wall-to-wall census and asset locating: RFID tags, unlike barcodes, you do not need line-of-sight reading. The RFID device will capture the signal of the tag and will transmit that information to a server or a computer using VCS™. RFID technology eliminates the human error aspect of a cage census, ensuring 99-100% accuracy.
- Eliminate “bad” data: VCS™ never counts twice and provides the right data in real time. The VCS™ census reports show what cages have and have not been seen in a particular location. If a cage is missing, the report will show the information that is related to that cage.
- Generate census history and billing reports: The Vivarium Census System allows for strong reporting for billing purposes and diverse accountability systems.
- Integrate with other programs: With several methods, the Vivarium Census System can integrate with a number of programs and databases.
