Since 2001, the Animal House of BSRC "Alexander Fleming" provides high quality breeding and experimental environment and animal models to the biomedical research community, promoting animal welfare, excellence and scientific interaction.
BSRC PhenoClinic is equipped with the Mainz COLOVIEW System from Karl Storz, providing high-resolution mini-endoscopy imaging services (examination of living animals over time), endoscopy-guided orthotopic implantation of cells and support, for studies involving mouse models of intestinal inflammation and cancer.
BSRC PhenoClinic is equipped with Vevo 3100 Imaging System from FUJIFILM VisualSonics, a software-controlled system that acquires and displays high-resolution, real-time ultrasound images, intended for diagnostic imaging and fluid flow analysis on small animals in the laboratory environment.
BSRC PhenoClinic is equipped with the In-Vivo Xtreme Imaging System from Bruker, a system with quantitative high sensitivity imaging of luminescent, radioisotopic, and multi-wavelength fluorescent labeled biomolecules in combination with radiographic and reflectance imaging, providing powerful and versatile in vivo imaging for small animals.
Irradiation services and support are provided at the BSRC Fleming, which is equipped with the MDS Nordion Gammacell 3000 Elan, ideal for the irradiation of small animals for myeloablation/chimera creation. The scientific personnel can provide users with consultation related to experimental design and assistance for their projects.
