Dalia A. Conde, Species360 Conservation Science Alliance Director, speaks with Frans Carlson about the importance of educating a next generation of scientists.
Zoo, aquarium, wildlife veterinarians use the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record and share information regarding animals in their care. Now, when these veterinary teams send blood samples to IDEXX, they can view and upload the report directly in ZIMS for Medical.
