The platform provides for electrophysiological investigation by sharp electrode and patch-clamp recordings. Imaging includes 3 confocal microscopes, laser microdissection, conventional multi-wavelength fluorescence and high resolution white light microscopy.
Observation of cells non-invasively in animals making it a very useful tool for work on bone biology.
This shared resource – incorporating the AAHL Biosecurity Microscopy Facility (ABMF) – provides world-class infrastructure and related technology platforms for researchers conducting projects requiring a high biocontainment/biosecure environment.
Neuro Research Services provides academic and industry researchers access to a comprehensive rodent neuro-phenotyping facility. Behavioural equipment, including video tracking software systems, enables the assessment of rodent motor function, memory, learning, addiction, anxiety, depression and nociception. This is complemented by neuro-histology and an advanced microscopy service that enables the full [...]
Mice can be shipped to our Facility to obtain a range of complex exams (on a fee-for-service basis) used to characterize mouse metabolism, blood composition including hormones, energy balance and physical activity, eating and exercise, insulin resistance, metabolic fluxes and physiology. Many tests are done in living animals and are [...]
