Imaging

The Longwood Small Animal Imaging Facility (LSAIF) provides investigators with a streamlined system for the transport, testing and imaging of small animals used in research studies.

Services Include:

  • PET/CT
  • PET/MRI
  • SPECT/CT
  • nanoCT
  • microMRI
  • Bioluminescence
  • Fluorescence

The Core’s services extend to experimental design, data analysis, image fusion resources and a satellite animal facility for longitudinal studies.

Blood Lab

Blood testing is a valuable tool that can reveal a wealth of data to investigators. Testing results measured against reference standards can show abnormalities, presence of disease, health of organs, and trends in experimental groups. The Blood Lab gives investigators access to a wide range of experimental tools.

Services Include:

  • Blood Gas
  • Complete Blood Count (CBC)
  • Custom Chemistry
