Animal Orders

Office of Lab Animal Resources (OLAR) requires all lab animal orders to be approved and placed by Bell Reynolds. If this is not followed, the order will be cancelled and/or not accepted into the OLAR animal facility. 

Placing an Order

To request an animal order, a “Non-Catalog Form” needs to be placed through Mountaineer Marketplace by the requester.  The “Live Animal” box on form has to be checked in order to be routed directly to Bell Reynolds' queue and order to be placed. Along with production description the name of investigator and protocol number needs to be on form also. If the PI name and protocol # is not listed the requisition it will be returned to requester and will have to be resubmitted with this information.
