Services and Pricing

Pricing for each project varies, depending on the scope, complexity, the molecular imaging probe, and the number of mice. Prices quoted are valid for NCI investigators only. Please use the imaging request form to initiate an imaging submission. Service will be charged according to two (2) distinct processes: image acquisition and analysis in quarter hour intervals. The image acquisition service includes prep, animal handling, injections, anesthesia, imaging, and post-imaging procedures (decontaminate working area, uploading images to an image archival system, returning animals to the facility, etc.). The analysis service includes all types of image analysis. The molecular markers (D-Luciferin and Magnevist) are included in the image acquisition service cost. All other imaging agents (i.e. ultrasound microbubbles, radiopharmaceuticals, fluorescence probes, etc) will be an additional charge. Additional molecular contrast agents and probes will be added when they become available.
