Cancer Institute

  • Animal Imaging Core

    The Animal Imaging Core Facility has advanced imaging technology that allows Cancer Institute investigators to accurately monitor the development of tumors growing within animals. These tools allow our researchers to monitor more than the size of the tumor, these technologies provide detailed insight into some of the molecular and biological events occurring inside the animal. This core facility allows us to obtain so much more information from our experiments than traditional tumor measurements could provide.

    These instruments include:

    • IVIS Spectrum animal imager system (Caliper Life Sciences)
    • Proscan 2 Ti-U Microscope with time-lapse real-time video capacity (Nikon)
