Animal and Cell Models

Users of the imaging facility have the option of producing their own bioluminescent and fluorescent substrates or make use of commercially available models. A number of transgenic mice [PDF] where the luciferase gene is under control of specific promoters, as well as cell lines, that expresses luciferase for cell tracking purposes are available from the company Caliper LifeSciences.

Please contact the company Caliper LifeSciences directly for the most up-to-date availability of animals and cells lines for your application. Specialists are available in Oncology, ID, Biofilms, Inflammatory Disease, and so on. Additional luciferase products can also be obtained from Promega.
