You should include a table of information pertaining to animal identification, allocation to study sub-groups, type of procedure performed, and the fate or disposition of each animal. For example, if animals are purchased with a USDA identification number but then subsequently identified with an institutional identification number and then further described by a group number, this information should be clearly understood and equally well presented to FDA so that a chain of custody of any individual test or control animal is possible.
