LAVAN by Omikron Systems GmbH ( is a modern web-based application that can be accessed from any end device. You need the appropriate web browser (Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Chromium, Microsoft Edge, Opera). All important data of our animal husbandry are available at a central location.

LAVAN has different user surfaces, which are optimized for different usage requirements (desktop vs. touch). Thus the work is easy to handle and is therefore documented in real time.

LAVAN visualizes at any time where the animals are currently located. LAVAN helps to fulfill the legal requirements, which for example result from the areas of genetic engineering law and animal protection law for our facility (including the EU directive 2010/63/EU). Working with LAVAN is intuitive and easy to learn. In addition to the productive system ( there is also a test system (, which is mainly used for training and practice purposes.
