Oakland University Biomedical Research Support Facility

Rochester,, Michigan, US
Company Type:
Academic Core Facility

Oakland University’s $5.8-million Biomedical Research Support Facility has been providing a high quality environment for animal research since it opened in August of 1999. This 7,500-square foot facility was funded, in part, by a grant from the National Center for Research Resources.

The state of the art structure features sixteen environmentally controlled animal housing rooms with an on-line computer control and monitoring system, and centralized cage-washing equipment that provides pass-through sterilization. The surgery area contains two operating suites that offer up to six surgical stations and an operating support room, recovery room, diagnostic lab, and radiological capabilities.

Also contained in the facility is a barrier/containment BSL-2 suite for work with animals involving infectious agents. These features support advanced biomedical research at Oakland University by providing the proper space and equipment for the humane care and use of laboratory animals in research.

The Biomedical Research Support Facility offers centralized laboratory animal research services that adhere to all applicable laws, standards and policies that govern responsible use of animals in research and education. The Biomedical Research Support Facility is accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC), a voluntary accrediting organization that enhances the quality of research, teaching, and testing by promoting humane, responsible animal care and use.
