Senior Gnotobiotic Facility Coordinator

Here you’ll see how Australia’s Translational Research Institute eliminated paper logs and enabled remote work practices for its gnotobiotic facility by moving to a custom unified database, and what the resulting data has revealed about work practices, staffing models, facilities, and space utilization. Emily Duggan illustrates the scope and impact of the inefficient “off the shelf” and “multiple systems” approach to managing complex research labs and animal facilities, including possible data loss, inaccuracy, and unnecessary duplication. She sets out the value proposition for bespoke database development, and TRI’s results in terms of staff process efficiencies, improved work environment, better scheduling, and extrapolation of key metrics.
