How to Upload Files to a Record(s) (e.g. Gel images)

You can upload files to any record in SoftMouse.NET - e.g. Mouselines, Mice, Litters, Matings, Cages, Projects, Experiments etc.

For example, you can upload a genotype gel image to individual Mouse Records or to entire Litter Records. You can also upload histology reports or necropsy reports or graphs to individual Experiment records. 


  • any file extension is accepted in the upload - .xlsx, .docx, .jpg, .tiff, .pdf, etc.
  • all file sizes must be under 20 MB
