The Biosecure Immunology Laboratory sits within inside AAHL's physical containment level 3 (PC3) quarantine envelope and houses a flow cytometer machine capable of sorting infected live cell types enabling researchers to compare the immune responses of different animal species, including humans, to highly pathogenic zoonotic agents.
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
Cell isolation and purification
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
Based at the Melbourne Brain Centre - in the heart of Parkville’s biological sciences precinct - Stem Cells Australia provides a purpose-built flow cytometry facility equipped with the latest high-end flow cytometric machinery for our members and other interested researchers
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.
The APN Histopathology and Organ Pathology service operates the only full histopathology service in Australia specialising in histopathological analysis of genetically manipulated mice. The service also provides analysis of mouse models of disease and a digital imaging service for histological and multi-colour fluorescence immunohistochemical slides. The service offers a web-based image retrieval system available by secure log-in from any site and utilises medical and veterinary histopathology consultants.
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.
