An in vivo mouse imaging core was established in 2013 in the Harvard Center for Comparative Medicine (HCCM) NRB facility. This was made possible with funds from the Harvard Medical School Tools and Technology (TnT) Committee, the Department of Cell Biology, and the Harvard Program in Therapeutic Science (HiTS). The core has a Perkin Elmer Lumina II.


Please see the Lumina II FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions about the instrument.
