The Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) Grade Animal Laboratory
The Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) Grade Animal Laboratory ensures high quality and reproducibility of animal testing. The laboratory is designed according to the "National Standard for the Quality of Laboratory Animal, PRC". It is set up according to the barrier system, which imposes stringent controls on the flow of personnel and materials to prevent microbial contamination. The animal laboratory is inspected annually by the authority and granted with "The Guangdong SPF Grade Laboratory Animal Facility Certificate".
The laboratory mainly accommodates KM mice, NIH mice, C57 mice, SD rats and nude mice for preventive and therapeutic studies. The animal laboratory allows reliable investigation of pharmacology, efficacy and safety evaluation of drugs under in vivo conditions.
The Pharmacology Laboratory
The Pharmacology Laboratory is equipped with the clinical chemistry analyzer and hematology analyzer to analyze the metabolites. Other sophisticated equipments are used to trace the radioactive biomarkers in animal studies to study the metabolism. Paraffin sectioning of tissues and organs for pathological investigation, e.g. in chronic toxicity study, can also be carried out. Cryostat can be used for sectioning of fresh tissues.
Cell Culture Laboratory
Cell Culture Laboratory was well equipped for cellular investigations required in e.g. in vitro drug screening, study of action mechanisms, etc. With the equipment in the Molecular Pharmacology Laboratory, in-depth studies at the genetic and proteomic level can be carried out.
