The University of Wisconsin-Madison Small Animal Imaging Facility (SAIF) is a comprehensive core facility of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC).
We are dedicated to providing innovative, state-of-the-art, affordable, noninvasive, high-resolution, in-vivo and ex-vivo imaging and radiotherapy support to UWCCC investigators, University of Wisconsin researchers, and industries. Although the SAIF is part of the UWCCC, we answer questions related to a broad spectrum of diseases and disciplines.
We scan animals up to ~500 grams, including primates, rabbits, reptiles, birds, gerbils, rats, mice, and other rodents. We also scan inanimate objects for investigators in the material science and biomedical engineering fields, for example. See our Services and Equipment pages for more information about what we can do for you. Please contact the SAIF manager, Justin Jeffery, directly if you have any questions.
Any published research which received funding from the UWCCC Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG), including the use of UWCCC Shared Resources to generate or analyze data or conduct clinical trials, must reference the UWCCC. See Acknowledging UWCCC in Publications, Posters and Presentations.
