The COVID-19 crisis significantly impacted laboratory animal research. As research personnel return to their labs and navigate the post COVID-19 research landscape, they will need to operate at limited capacity to comply with social distancing and other state mandate guidelines. As a result, researchers will need to revisit their research practices with a focus on […]
UID Identification Solutions is committed to helping scientists in their search for novel COVID-19 therapies. The UID Temperature Monitoring System is helping researchers perform routine temperature measurements to evaluate disease onset and progression, as well as animal health during active SARS-CoV-2 infection. We are excited to announce that Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in drug […]
Animal identification is essential to ensure the success of any preclinical study requiring the use of animal models. Early individual identification of mice is important to maintain data integrity throughout the course of research study. Implantable RFID microchips are ideal for this application as they offer a permanent, electronic and simple method for positive identification […]
Manual surgical monitoring techniques can be tedious for lab technicians as well as animals, given the multiple welfare checks needed per day plus the need for workers to update records accordingly. Further complicating matters, manual monitoring is generally done during daytime work hours, which causes researchers to miss out on valuable nighttime data points and […]
Researchers from Fordham and Columbia Universities, using an LF RFID solution from UID, were able to take rodent behavior research out of cages and labs to track wild rats in their own environment. READ MORE
Unified Information Devices (UID) is pleased to announce and welcome José Gadea as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. He will be responsible for sales team leadership, as well as developing strategic sales and marketing plans to stimulate sales growth and customer satisfaction. José joins the UID team from DURECT Corporation, a specialty pharmaceutical company located in […]
The first study to document interactions between feral cats and a wild rat colony finds that contrary to popular opinion, cats are not good predators of rats. In a novel approach, researchers monitored the behavior and movement of microchipped rats in the presence of cats living in the same area. They show the rats actively […]
In the summer of 2017, Michael Parsons found the urban rat haven of his dreams: A Waste Management transfer station—aka a literal trash heap, aka rat paradise—in Brooklyn, New York. For nearly two years, the behavioral ecologist and visiting scholar at Fordham University had been searching for a place to observe the city-dwelling rodents in their natural habitat. […]
