Record Naming Tab

Proceed to the record naming tab to set automatic naming for animals, cages, matings and litters within the project.  Each project can have different naming schemes.

Animal Naming

There are several ways to name animals within a project:  Animal Tag only, Prefix + Animal Tag (ie: A4567), Prefix and number (AA 001), or just start with a value (AB005).  mLIMS will increment by 1 based on your choices.  ** If           you are already automatically naming animals in System Settings, the Project Animal Naming will be disabled.  If you want to name animals differently for each Project, change animal naming to Manual in System                     Settings!

Cage, Mating, and Litter Naming

For these items,  naming is basic; use a Prefix and mLIMS will increment everything by 1 (ie: AC 1, AC 2, etc.)
