In vivo experimentation
Infrastructure and services to carry out animal experimentation including medical imaging and phenotyping services.

This facility is dedicated to the maintenance of rat, mouse and gerbil species, as well as to the development of experimental procedures performed with these species.
Services: i) housing and breeding of colonies (rodents). Stabling areas in SPF, conventional and NCB2 conditions: ventilated and conventional racks. Ii) Experimental services: sterilization center, SAS, radioactive imaging laboratory (SPECT-CT), optical imaging, metabolism and telemetry, activity and behavior, inhalation anesthesia. Iii) animal supply. Iv) transgenesis

This service develops its activity in rodents. It offers support in the evaluation of animal models for different pathologies through preclinical imaging equipment, telemetry, and functional tests. It has Fluorescence Optical Imaging equipment for monitoring cellular processes, Doppler Laser Imaging for vascular flow monitoring, Gamma Imaging of radiotracers (NanoSPECT-CT), Telemetry (blood pressure, temperature, EEG biopotentials, ECG and EMG), Metabolism, Sensory-motor system and different procedures with rodents. The medical imaging service also offers support for animal pre-preparation, inoculation of cell lines, fluorescent particles, sample collection and data processing and pre-experimental preparation and data processing support.

Equipment: IVIS® Lumina, Laser Doppler and SPECTCT BioScan/Mediso NanoSPECT/CT) imaging equipment; Telemetry, Food & Drink stations and Oxilet System; Open Field, Treadmill, Activity Boxes, Hot/Cold Plate


Equipment to quantitatively measure sensory block and equipment to quantitatively measure motor block and pain in rodent anesthesia studies. They are very specific to evaluate if a local anesthetic achieves such anesthesia.

Equipment: Hot/Cold Plate NG (Ugo Basile) and Incapacitance Tester (Panlab).
