The In Vivo Services (IVS) Core in the Department of Comparative Medicine is designed to provide care and management of research mouse colonies at the UW. In addition, we offer an array of technical procedures, including metabolic and behavioral assays as well as drug testing in mice and rats. All services through the IVS Core are charged on an hourly tech time rate.


Our facility is available to all University of Washington investigators and outside institutions..
