Animal Models and Imaging Facility (AMIF)

Animal Imaging Equipment

The Animal Models & Imaging Facility (AMIF) provides small animal imaging and support for preclinical models for West Virginia University researchers and their collaborators. We are conveniently located within the OLAR Animal Facility in the WVU Health Sciences Center.  The AMIF currently performs acute and longitudinal studies on both mice and rats. The AMIF is a fee-for-service facility run by skilled technicians who are available for consultation and assistance with experimental design and data interpretation. In addition, we can provide users with individualized training to independently perform imaging experiments.
