Specialized Mouse Services Core at Fred Hutchinson

The Specialized Mouse Services Core at the Fred Hutchinson provides expert technical assistance and access to four immune deficient mice strains - NSG, NRG, NSG-SGM3, and NBSGW - for in vivo hematopoietic studies. We xenograft human cell products provided by researchers or the Cell Procurement and Processing Core to generate in vivo models for assaying hematopoietic cell function and disease. We have technical expertise with a variety of routes of drug and cell administration, sample collection and processing, and non-invasive imaging. We can accelerate research progress by performing an entire in vivo experiment in our facility for researchers from anywhere in the country, deliver samples and data.
