Facility Details

The Animal Models and Imaging Facility (AMIF) is a full-service shared resource that provides state-of-the-art small animal imaging to West Virginia University (WVU) researchers and their collaborators, as well as extensive training and assistance with planning experiments and interpreting data. . The AMIF currently performs acute and longitudinal bioluminescence and fluorescence studies on mice using a Caliper IVIS Lumina II optical imaging system. In addition, the facility has recently acquired a VisualSonics Vevo 2100 for real time, micro-ultrasound imaging. The AMIF also offers services such as mouse colony management, tissue collection, cryopreservation of sperm, various surgeries and assistance with designing and writing imaging procedures for animal protocols. The AMIF is growing rapidly to support the preclinical imaging needs of researchers at WVU.
