About MausDB

MausDB is a laboratory mouse information and management system (LMIMS). MausDB has been custom developed for the needs and requirements of the German Mouse Clinic. It has been published and made available for the scientific community.

Its purpose is to facilitate all aspects of handling laboratory mice

  • by storing all relevant data of a mouse facility including animal data in one central database.
  • by providing this data to all users simultaneously on a multi-user access platform.
  • by ensuring that information is up-to-date and all users have access to the same information (in contrast to working with distributed spreadsheet files).
  • by providing useful overviews and search functions

Its intended use is to comprehensively manage mouse houses ranging from one rack only up to large mouse facilites hosting tens of thousands of mice.
