Vivarium The institute houses a pathogen-free barrier facility that allows for the breeding of specialized transgenic- and immune-deficient mouse strains and a full range of related services. It consists of approximately 10,500 square feet of shower-in, disease-free housing for experimental mice, along with 14 holding/procedure rooms. Resources within the vivarium include an animal irradiator for transplantation procedures, stereotactic equipment for brain injections, anesthesia machines, behavioral testing rooms, and connection to a variety of stem cell imaging modalities through CMGI.
