Comprehensive Services for Experimental Irradiation
The skilled Experimental Irradiation Shared Resource team at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center provides extensive irradiation services to support research studies. We provide expert experimental irradiation for a range of investigators, including those whose primary interests are not in radiation biology, but who need this tool in support of other efforts – such as the immunosuppression of animals prior to stem cell transplantation through total body irradiation.
With safe and efficient sample exposure, our facility is equipped to perform moderate dose rate gamma irradiation (0.1-4 Gy/min) of cell cultures, tissue specimens or animals as well as low dose rate irradiation (0.05-0.3 Gy/hr) of cell cultures.
H2: Irradiation Core Services Support Cancer Research
Additional specific goals of the Experimental Irradiation Shared Resource include:
- Support studies in the radiation biology of moderate dose rate irradiation of cell cultures and small animals, such as mice, rats and rabbits
- Permit the study of low dose rate irradiation in cell culture
- Facilitate study of the cellular responses to DNA damage using laser microirradiation as a tool
