In the April 2017 issue of ALN Magazine includes a feature story on the innovation at play in the new Centralized Research Support Facility for the University of California – San Diego (UC San Diego).

The system functions with the efficiency and precision of an automatic car wash — with the unsanitized cages that come from a single facility being sanitized and returned to the exact same facility, with minimal human contact. Cost and resource savings being realized by UC San Diego are highlighted.
