Animal Model Facility  -  IPATIMUP
All researchers can use these facilities to perform research with animal models. The available mice strain is produced in our Animal House: an immunodeficient mouse model, with combined immunodeficiency in T- and B-cells, which supports the growth of human and animal tumor xenografts. Their main area of application is in tumour biology and xenograft research. For more information please visit www. > Diagnostic Services > Animal Model Facility
Zebrafish Facility  - 
The zebrafish model is used for the study of human genetic diseases such as, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, neurological diseases, inflammation, angiogenesis, muscle-associated diseases, osteoporosis and regenerative medicine. At IMM zebrafish facility we have two strains of wild type lines, two microinjectors and two fluorescent stereomicroscopes for all the researchers who want to perform animal research with this model. For more information please contact our facility.
Animal House  -  Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology
The Animal House is a shared resource that provides services in laboratory animal experimentation and husbandry, for all CNC and FUMC scientists using animals in their research. The present facility has a capacity to house more than 3000 animals (rats/mice). This facility offers the following services: complete husbandry, including feeding, watering, daily cage changing, as well as routine procurement, inventory and care.
Animal Facility  -  IBMC - Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology
The IBMC/INEB AH is a breeding and experimental facility. The AH holds 2000 cages of rodents and 2 to 4 rabbits. The AH has several strains of genetically modified mice and a considerable part of it are immunocompromised rodents. The AH provides care and maintenance of GMA animais, breeding services, veterinary care and surgical support to the diferent strains and experimental models. Polyclonal antibody production is available.
Serviço de Cirurgia Experimental  -  Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade do Porto
Excelentes condições de trabalho para cirurgia animal e para investigação. Destaca-se por ter sido aqui pela primeira vez a nível mundial que se obtiveram imagens radiográficas de vasos linfáticos e se efectuou um transplante cardíaco experimental. Mais recentemente efetuaram-se transplantes hepáticos em porcos, bem como diversos trabalhos com biomateriais dos quais resultaram inúmeras publicações e teses de Doutoramento bem como vários cursos internacionais (trauma, cirurgia laparoscópica).
Bn'ML-Behavioral and Molecular Lab  -  Life and Health Science Research Institute (ICVS)
Bn’ML company provides behavioral and molecular analysis services for both the academia and industry to assess the therapeutic potential of new compounds, using animal models of disease. Our services include: a flexible design of the study to evaluate the therapeutic potential of new compounds; the induction of the disease symptoms in animals; the administration of the compounds in animals; the evaluation of the therapeutic potential of the compounds at the behavioral and molecular levels.
Biosafety Level 3 Unit of Specialized Services (BSL3 USS)  -  Life and Health Science Research Institute (ICVS)
The BSL3 USS is composed by a Biosafety Committee and Biosaftey Coordinators to assure that the European and International guidelines of biosafety and biosecurity are fulfilled. The BSL3 USS also provides education, training, and guidance for researchers. The BSL3 USS allows in vitro and in vivo experimentation involving biosafety level 3 pathogens. The BSL3 USS is fully equipped with tissue culture rooms and animal experimentation rooms for mice and guinea pigs.
C. elegans Shared Facility (ElegantLab)  -  Life and Health Science Research Institute (ICVS)
The ElegantLab is a combination of two rooms with controlled temperature and fully equipped to maintain and handle the animal model Caenorhabditis elegans. The research focus of this facility is mainly related to a better understanding of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disease mechanisms, as well as to search for therapeutic strategies.
Animal Facility Unit  -  Life and Health Science Research Institute (ICVS)
The ICVS has a fully equipped SPOF animal house prepared for rats, mice and guinea pigs. The facility has several rooms for animal maintenance and experimentation, equipped and prepared for surgical and experimental procedures. The animal facility team provides services of husbandry, veterinary care and animal welfare counseling. Our institution also have facilities equipped and prepared for minimally invasive surgical training and research, by using in vivo animal models as pigs and rabbits.
ANIMAL FACILITIES  -  Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Beira Interior
The CICS- UBI animal Facilities comprise a quarantine room, a breeding area with rooms prepared for approximately 1600 mice and 700 rats and an experimentation area prepared also for housing mice (approximately 1000) and rats (approximately 220). All rooms are equipped with Individually ventilated cages. The experimentation area includes a surgery room. The animal facility team provides feeding, watering, daily cage changing and veterinary care.
