Eastern Virginia Medical School Vivarium and Zebrafish Core
Academic Core Facility
The AAALAC accredited animal research facility located inside of the EVMS campus covers a space of approximately 24,345 ft2. The newly-renovated facility is able to house multiple species, including mice under modern barrier facilities. BSL-2 rooms are available for use, if needed, and the animals are cared for by a full-time veterinarian with trained support staff. The vivarium is set up to assist the investigators with breeding programs, diet studies and drug delivery. The facility contains modern surgical suites and imaging via ultrasound, X-ray and an IVIS Lumina imaging system. The IVIS Lumina is an in vivo imaging system with fluorescence, bioluminescence, X-ray and visible light imaging capabilities.
The Zebrafish core, located in the vivarium, consists of both a housing unit and Zebrafish embryo manipulation/microinjection equipment. The Zebrafish Core includes an Aquaneering® E-rack which provides advantages in size and portability. The core is setup to allow for gene manipulation in this animal model. An experienced core director is available to assist investigators and provide training.
