When experiment results are added they are automatically associated with an animal. As well as viewing all results for the Study, you can also view all the results for each individual animal, by choosing the Results tab on the animal record, as shown below.
Understanding Result information and icons
By default, the Result list shows you all the Study and Experiment results for the specific animal that has been selected.
The Results information includes the Protocol, the Study, the Experiment, the original Due date and time the result was expected to have been recorded; the actual date and time the result was recorded, which cage / rack / room location the animal was housed in at the time the result was recorded, the test method performed; the ethical endpoint status and the result value.
You can filter the list of results by Study, Phase and Experiment. To do this, click on the All option below the Study field label and this will display a list of Studies. When you select a study, this will then offer a choice of phases to select from. When you select a Phase, this will offer a choice of experiments to select from. As shown below.
Status – no ethical endpoint triggered
Status – warning – ethical endpoint is approaching maximum tolerance
When you see a study result with this ethical endpoint status, you should check to ensure the protocol for an endpoint that is nearing the maximum threshold has been actioned for this animal.
Status – danger – ethical endpoint has been reached – action required
When you see a study result with this ethical endpoint status, you should check to ensure the protocol for breaching endpoints has been actioned for this animal.
Discarded task status icon
When a result task is discarded, the discarded result task will display with no value and the status icon will display as above.
A Result can be corrected by clicking on the above icon. The values to input will vary depending on what data the result requires. For example, the case below enables a volume calculation to be amended by changing either the width or the length.
The date and time will default to the time and date now, but can be set in the past.
You must enter a reason for why the original result is being changed, for example: the scales were not tared or calibrated for the original result capture.
All changes to results are captured in the history of the result, which is explained below.
