Biorepository Shared Resource, or BRSR, now uses an online system for requesting and processing core service requests. The software, Stratocore PPMS, has been implemented in 12 other UC Davis research core facilities and has over 2,000 registered UC Davis and external users.

Each core customer (each lab member) will require a PPMS account to submit orders.

For questions or concerns about the PPMS implementation, please contact or visit Stratocore PPMS
