Preclinical Imaging Facility (Sci3@Porter) and Canary Center Shared Instruments

                                                                   

Stanford Center for Innovation in In vivo Imaging at Porter (Sci3@Porter) is a Service Center Imaging facility that provide resources for the application and advancement of technologies for in-vivo biological assessment and imaging in animal models. Its mission is to develop an infrastructure, strategies, expertise and tools to perform mutlimodality in-vivo imaging in animal models and/or clinical translations.

As a Service Center, the imaging facility operate on a fee-for-service basis for users who are trained to use the instrument normally independently or with minimum supervision. Usage fees are calculated at per usage hour base and include reconstruction of data sets in standard format.  The service center does not provide radioisotopes and contrast imaging agents and these costs are not included in the instrument usage fee but basic consumables are usually provided.

Investigators who are interested in joining the facility and get more information about how to obtain access to the facility,  get hands on training or other services of the facility should contact Dr. Frezghi Habte.
