Fundación Instituto de Investigación Valle de Hebrón_VHIR
Vall d’Hebron Institut de Recerca-Core Facilities (VHIR-CF) provide specialized services to the scientific community to support preclinical and clinical projects. Two of the VHIR-CF, the Hospital Universitari Vall d’Hebron Biobank (HUVH Biobank) and the Lab Animal Service (LAS), collaborate with the Platform of Biobanks and Biomodels. The HUVH Biobank is a research support unit that collects human biological samples for biomedical research purposes in compliance with current legislation, and whose objective is to make available to the scientific community the biological material necessary for research in optimal conditions to ensure competitiveness and research excellence. The LAS facilities are divided in two areas: 1) Rodent Area with an standard clean area, a passive quarantine, a barrier area to accommodate immunodeficient mice, manipulation rooms and the Molecular Imaging Platform; 2) the Large Animals Area to accommodate rabbits, pigs and sheep with complete experimental operating rooms to carry out teaching and experimental surgery projects.
