Because sharing is caring - tick@lab User Community shares resources

Darmstadt, Germany/ Edinburgh, UK - Aug 29, 2019

We are very happy to inform our user community that the very first customer shared templates are now available in a-tune’s tick@lab resource library.

By sharing some of their internally created tick@lab templates for the recording of medical records and observations, the University of Edinburgh opened up what a-tune hopes to become a lively network for the sharing of resources within the tick@lab User Community.

Following the successful UK user group gathering in July, where the University of Edinburgh gave a presentation about ‘Intelligence from your data’ there were some identified templates that the University of Edinburgh had created in house which were subsequently requested by other members of the user community.

Following some discussions and checking for compatibility with tick@lab 3.0 it was agreed by the University of Edinburgh that a-tune could share these templates in the tick@lab resource library to make them available within the whole user community.

This really opens the door to greater collaboration and knowledge transfer to better support research and enhance animal welfare within the user community. We hope that this will open the door for others to also share reports and templates that have been created in house to build a greater resource library that is accessible to the growing tick@lab community.

We are really proud to be the leaders in this new initiative. We welcome openness within the user communities and look forward to further collaborations worldwide with the sharing of material that could benefit us all.

Dr Matthew Sharp, The University of Edinburgh

At a-tune we value tremendously the user community and strive to support and grow this environment. By making shared material accessible on our resource library gives our users more choice. In turn this better supports the use of tick@lab within the research community providing more accurate data collection and reporting.

Andreas Staubi, CEO a-tune

The University of Edinburgh’s templates can be found under Downloads > tick@lab > Breeding Stock Templates and Reports > Customer Contributions.

We would like to thank the University of Edinburgh in leading the way with this new initiative.
