Simplified breeding data

Automate your data

Data is automatically updated via the cloud in real time. When internet access is not available, lab animal professionals can record data in offline mode — Colony will sync the data when internet access is restored. Plus, genotyping results from Transnetyx will be automatically applied to animal data as soon as they’re ready.

Reduce human error

When everyone is using the same data, there’s less room for error. The Colony software is easy to use, and provides integrated task management to help you avoid wasting time resources.

Setup with ease

Our iOS app has integrated barcode scanning to simplify racks and rooms setup and makes your animal counts simple and convenient.

Easy integration with
automated genotyping

Transnetyx Automated Genotyping users can easily order, review, and assign genotype results directly in your software. No manual entry. No messy spreadsheets.
