CNPRC Services provide resources for data, biologic and genetic material, consultation in experimental design, sample collection, unique assay services, and specialized services, facilities, and equipment that are crucial to addressing scientific questions specific to nonhuman primate-related research.

Core Services

The Flow Cytometry Core supplies flow cytometry instrumentation, experimental protocols, technical support, maintenance, and administration for three instruments that are very intensively used in a variety of research endeavors.

Please visit the Flow Cytometry Page for more information.

The primary mission of the Inhalation Exposure Core  is to serve as a state-of-the-art facility and educational resource for the design, completion, analysis, and interpretation of studies involving health effects of airborne materials.

Visit Inhalation Exposure Core

The Multimodal Imaging Core provides services to investigators locally, regionally, and nationally, encompassing scales that range from cellular to whole-animal imaging. The Core provides microscopy, stereology, digital imaging, qualitative and quantitative applications, and in vivo imaging (e.g. ultrasound, optical, microPET, PET/CT).

The Primate Assay Laboratory Core encompasses the laboratories formerly known as the Endocrinology Core and Pathogen Detection Laboratory Core. Visit the Primate Assay Laboratory Core.

Other Services

ACP has extensive expertise in clinical, gross, and microscopic diagnostic pathology to support multidisciplinary research in human health and disease.

Visit Anatomic and Clinical Pathology

The Clinical Laboratory provides both clinical and research support in the areas of hematology, microbiology, chemistry, parasitology, serum preparation, and urinalysis.

Visit Clinical Laboratory

The Genetics Management Services provides research support in the following areas: genetic management, analysis of genealogical and demographic data, bioinformatic analysis, custom DNA extraction and purification, whole genome amplification, SNP, STR and mtDNA assays, and development of genotyping assays based on conventional fragment size analysis (including STRs and RFLPs), Sanger sequencing, CNV, SNP and real-time qPCR techniques.

Associated Laboratories
and Centers

Bead-based multiplex immunoassay test systems to enable the detection and measurement of multiple proteins simultaneously and quantitatively in a single test sample.

Visit Clinical Proteomics Core Laboratory

This Core is designed to provide nonhuman primate researchers with easily accessible, customized, and cost-effective resources for integrating analyses of microbial community structure and host-microbe interactions in health and disease.

Visit Host Microbe and Systems Biology Core

NHLBI-funded investigators interested in gene therapy strategies may utilize the NHLBI Center for Fetal Monkey Gene Transfer for Heart, Lung, and Blood Diseases located at the CNPRC.

Visit the CFMGT

A state-of-the-art, 19,000 square-foot wet laboratory and inhalation exposure facility that is setting the standards for research in respiratory health.

Conducting Research
The CNPRC has unique and specialized resources and scientists with extensive expertise available to facilitate your research with nonhuman primates.
For more information, visit Conducting Research.

In addition to the CNPRC services, researchers have access to:

    • A nationally competitive program in functional genomics, located in the Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility, approximately 1 mile from the Primate Center.  The Genome Center‘s technology cores and expertise are focused on high throughput genotyping, physical gene mapping, gene expression/array analysis, proteomics, metabolomics, and population genetics.
    • The West Coast Metabolomics Center, one of six regional resource cores designed to expand the availability of metabolomics services to investigators in many diverse fields while simultaneously advancing the state-of-the art in metabolomics research.
