Why Is There A Red Card On My Cage?

Dr Khary Adams, Director, Laboratory Animal Resources at Incyte, gave permission for APCF to share this page with users.

In the near future APCF will be introducing a 2 card notification system. A red special observation card which is telling the user there is something wrong with their cage of animals which needs rectification and a yellow request card which is from the user to the APCF staff asking them to perform or not perform certain tasks on the user’s cage of animals. The cards do away with post-it notes and scraps of paper

The red cards contain details of actions that must be carried out by the user/s within a set time frame and are therefore accountable items which will be kept for future third party audits and reviews.

Further details will appear in the News page once the system is finalised
