The DRC Islet Preparation Core enables clinical and basic research scientists to study and obtain isolated pancreatic islets. Expert personnel perform the technically challenging isolation of islets from mice provided by investigators or from research consented human cadaver donors. The Core will coordinate and provide islets to investigators when research need matches the availability of a human research pancreas or a prearranged mouse islet experiments. Please see the SERVICES tab for more details about each component of the DRC Islet Preparation Core.
The Islet Preparation Core is subsidized by the University can lower the cost (see RATES) for DRC investigators requiring isolated islets. External academic researchers and commercial researchers will receive a similar base price for service, but must pay an additional 26% overhead charge. To initiate an order, please email Gregory Szot for additional information and rates. FEEDBACK on available or missing services or information is always appreciated.
Human research islets are available monthly based on user participation and request. Mouse islets are prepared regularly in the core via a prearranged schedule.
