Probe and Reagent Imaging Protocol Information
Imaging probes will be administered to mice intravenously through tail vein or retro-orbital at a volume not to exceed 100 microliters. Probes will be administered to rats intravenously through tail vein injection at a volume not to exceed 200 microliters. The animals will be housed in the imaging facility located within Friemann after injection of any radio-isotopic probe. The animal will remain in the facility behind lead bricks until the half-life of the probe has decreased to background level (<0.1mR/hr) (24-48hrs). The animals will be provided food and water while being held in the imaging facility. If the animals need to be held in the imaging facility over a weekend or a holiday, Friemann staff will be notified and will ensure that the animals well being is monitored during that time.
