Ensuring High-Quality Animal Care

The Division of Animal Resources (DAR), in partnership with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation, researchers, students, and regulatory agencies, is responsible for ensuring high-quality animal care and for providing training in and consultation on the safe, humane use of laboratory animals in research and education in compliance with federal regulations and campus policies.

Controlled Substances

Principal investigators who require controlled substances for their research must obtain their own State of Illinois and Federal controlled substances licenses. Information on obtaining these licenses is listed below. Please contact dartechs1@illinois.edu if there are any questions about this process.

Non-Controlled Drug and Supplies

Many distributors have applied restrictions that no longer allow persons who do not hold a DVM license to place orders. DAR has implemented procedures to assist researchers in obtaining non-controlled drugs and supplies needed to facilitate research. Investigators are asked to submit a completed Non-Controlled Drug and Supply Request via email dartechs1@illinois.edu for processing.

You should expect confirmation that your request has been received within two to three business days. Supply orders will be placed twice a month (on or about the 15th and 30th of each month). Receipt of shipments may take up to two weeks for delivery. Your contact person will be notified when the items are ready for pick up at the DAR main office.

Per Diem Rates

The Division of Animal Resources per diem rates are based on an actual annual cost. View the per diem rate table here.
