The services of LASP laboratories and facilities may be accessed using the
"Yellow Task Request System" and
Accessions System. These web-based
systems enable investigators to request services and obtain cost and time
estimates for each project. NCI approval is an integral function of these
processes, which ensures that adequate funding and other resources are
available to perform the work.
For all LASP services, excluding Pathology/Histotechnology, select the
Yellow Task Request System.
For Pathology/Histotechnology, select the
PHL is the NCI core facility dedicated to providing
comprehensive core pathology support to NCI investigators both in Frederick and Bethesda.
Examples of current turn-around times for PHL are provided for potential users; please
click here. If these times are incompatible with your needs
please contact us to discuss your project. Alternately, click here
for a list of commercial laboratories.
The Veterinary Resources Program (VRP) located in Bethesda
is also available to all NIH investigators, please contact them directly.
The Frederick National Lab Small Animal Imaging Program was established to provide NCI Investigators with a state-of-the-art In Vivo imaging facility.
The objectives and mission of the SAIP are to provide a state-of-the-art "In Vivo" scientific, technical, and instrumental support including but not limited to: optical (bioluminescence and fluorescence), magnetic resonance (MR), X-ray computed tomography (CT), single photon emission tomography (SPECT), ultrasound, positron emission tomography (PET) imaging modalities, animal handling techniques, and image analysis.
The online system provides investigators with an overview of active Animal Study Proposals (ASPs) including the following details: the ASP number, title, facility location, species, number of animals authorized for use, approval date, and expiration date in both Frederick and Bethesda.
For NCI at Frederick, the online system also provides investigators with the total number of animals used, % usage, and PDF versions
of their ASPs and Modifications. The online system also provides investigators with
current animal inventory data in NCI at Frederick animal facilities. The goal is to
promote communication between the facility and the investigative staff to ensure
that records are properly maintained and to provide an online resource for investigators
to make colony management decisions.
