How will DLAR assist labs in providing supplies for animal work?

To facilitate continued physical distancing, the DLAR has implemented an ordering system to provide needed supplies to animal anterooms/vestibules, procedural areas, and housing rooms. An order form has been placed on the DLAR website (https://dacup.duke.edu/husdandry-request-form) that can be downloaded, or requested from an Assistant Manager/Operations Manager, and completed by research labs.  The completed form should be submitted to the Assistant Manager/Operation Manager of the respective vivarium area by 2 business days prior to intended use of the supplies. Items available for ordering include: additional cages, special bedding, enrichment devices, food treats, water bottles, deprivation caps and tags, and other needs.

Note: DLAR pharmacy items may continue to be ordered by regular methods and information is available at dlarpharmacy@dm.duke.edu.  Controlled substances require scheduling for pickup, while other pharmacy items will be available by the front desk of the Central Vivarium.
