Stocks of tumor cells are well defined and obtained only from trusted sources. vivoPharm possess more than 2,500 reference data points for SoC.
Tumor lines are inoculated primarily as a suspension or as fragments for lines with long lag-phase.
Tumors are inoculated subcutaneously or orthotopic. Orthotopic models such as brain, breast, lung, skin, liver, pancreas, colon, kidney and kidney capsule, prostate, ovaries and bladder, are available. For all target organs we have developed quasi “leakage-free” inoculation techniques avoiding the growth of satellites.
For some of the orthotopic models we offer tumorectomy to study growth of secondary tumors (metastases).
