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.
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.
ACP has extensive expertise in clinical, gross, and microscopic diagnostic pathology to support multidisciplinary research in human health and disease.
The Clinical Laboratory provides both clinical and research support in the areas of hematology, microbiology, chemistry, parasitology, serum preparation, and urinalysis.
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.
Primate Medicine provides clinical veterinary care to a colony of about 5,000 nonhuman primates, and veterinary research support to investigators.
WhatIF is a mathematical modeling program prediction of population structure in breeding colonies of nonhuman primates. This software allows for projections of age class, life stage, and gender, as well as simulations of the effect on population structure of various demographic and management parameters.
The CNPRC has unique and specialized resources and scientists with extensive expertise available to facilitate your research with nonhuman primates.

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.
