SANCHEZ, O.E; PEREZ RUANO, M e PERCEDO, María Irian. SOFTWARE FOR MANAGING A SERA BANK OF ANIMALS IN AREAS WITH RISK OF EXOTIC DISEASES. Rev Salud Anim. [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.2, pp. 95-100. ISSN 0253-570X.
A software that supports a historical database for retrospective epidemiological research was designed and implemented for managing a sera bank, given the necessity to rapidly elucidate any suspicion of introduction or dissemination of an exotic disease. For the software design, the standard procedures of operation for taking, documenting and transporting serological sera of animals were reviewed. The system was developed in Microsoft Access XP and structured in three main parts: a) regional structure and catalogues, to obtain the primary data; b) forms, to update the official register; c) reports, to consolidate data for information analysis and decision making.
