Research Model Updates: SAP® Rollout, Barrier Room Expansion and Changes to Breeding Locations

In April 2018, Charles River Europe plans to roll out a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system which utilises SAP® technology. As part of these changes there will be improvements made to our inventory management systems, which will enhance our internal management processes helping us provide the highest level of customer service. Further information on our new system will be provided in the coming months.

We’ve also increased the number of breeding areas for several of our mouse and rat strains at our breeding facilities in Europe. Please see the tables below for further information.

For questions, please contact your local Customer Service teams.
