Please place your NIA order(s) in the NEW eSirius3G system after it is Active.
NIA orders must be placed by Tensie before 9:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Tuesdays.
Be sure to include your full Current Grant Number and Grant Title. The grant must include the species you are ordering. Eligibility criteria effective 1/18/2014
There is a limit to the number of animals that can be requested to arrive each month(the eligibility limit is based on the delivery date):
- NIA grantees are limited to a total of 20 animals delivered per month per NIA grant.
- All non-NIA grantees that directly point to Age Related animals are limited to a total of 10 animals delivered every other month per grant.
- The caloric restricted colony is restricted to NIA grantees with specific aims requiring CR mice. Food is only provided for CR (and AL control) animals purchased from the NIA caloric restricted colony or for NIA-funded grants that include specific aims requiring caloric restriction of rodents. The NIA does not provide food for animals purchased from the aging colonies outside of the above stated criteria.
- You can only order 30 days in advance of the requested delivery date.
- All orders are counted by the delivery date, not the order date.
- The NIA cannot approve requests for exceptions for C57BL/6 or CB6F1 for the foreseeable future, but they can consider requests for exception for BALB/c mice.
The DLAM Procurement Portal can no longer accept new orders.
All MMRRC & RRRC orders must be placed in the DLAM Procurement Portal.
Email Tensie the strain code/nomenclature you are interested in, if it is not listed in the strain list.
ALL Questions and concerns can be directed to Tensie Palmer at email@example.com.
NOTE: ALL MMRRC & RRRC orders require you file a COU through the UCLA MTA Office for each order. Orders are not available the very next week. Often take several weeks to arrive, depending on the COU process time and strain availability.
A COU is required for every order. The UCLA TDG office will need answers to these 4 questions before they approve the COU with MMRRC or RRRC.
1. Were they created at UCLA?
2. Were they created using viral vendors?
3. Does the genetic modification confer expression of any microbial pathogen genomic region?
4. Is the genetic modification hazardous in any way as to potentially require BSL-2 containment or higher (e.g., Does the genetic modification confer expression of a toxin)?
New Orders are not being accepted until the new system opens in July.
ROC Strains on Hold
Radiation Oncology Colony will not accept orders for all strains of mice until the new DLAM system is in place.
If you placed an order for any strain that would be Back Ordered, you will be required to change vendor or Tensie Palmer will cancel your ROC order.
Thank you for understanding. If you have questions, please contact Tensie Palmer at 310/794-2571 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
You may have seen the recent announcement of DLAM's new Facility Management Software implementation.
With this software rollout, animal procurement & internal transfers will be unavailable from 5:00 a.m. June 26, 2019 (last delivery date is June 25, 2019) to 7:00 a.m. July 8, 2019 (delivery date July 16, 2019).
