The Werribee Animal Health Facility (WAHF), comprises almost 20 acres of grazing areas, stock yards and animal room accommodation for medium to large animal species requiring QC1 to QC2 levels of microbiological, quarantine approved, containment.
Flow Cytometry Assays
Production of mouse models of human disease
Next Generation Sequencing of DNA
Profiling/UnTargeted and Quantitative/Targeted Metabolomics on a variety of biological systems
A core facility of the Melbourne Brain Centre at Parkville. We provide access to optical microscopy including bright field and fluorescence microscopy, live cell imaging (both wide-field and confocal) and confocal microscopy, as well as specialised stereology and neuron tracing work stations. The facility also has state of the art facilities for image analysis, deconvolution and 3D rendering and animation (including Amira, Huygens and Metamorph Software).
Standard OGTR certified PC3 bio-containment facility with laboratories set up for both bacterial and viral applications
This purpose built facility provides researchers in Melbourne with a world-class flow cytometry resource, equipped with the latest in high-end instrumentation
The Australian Phenomics Network (APN) brings together multiple services with world-class infrastructure and expertise for the creation, characterisation and cryopreservation of mouse models of human disease. Generous funding from Federal/ State government, research institutions and NHMRC means the APN can offer researchers access to services at a greatly reduced cost.
Burnet Antiviral Screening facility offers testing of chemical agents for their inhibitory activity against viruses including HIV and herpes simplex type 1 and 2 in cell culture based assays.
AAHL is a world class high-containment facility enabling research and diagnostics on the most dangerous animal and zoonotic pathogens. Extensive laboratories and expertise at physical containment levels 3 and 4 available for collaborative and fee-for-service research.
