Services Descriptions

Training:

A mouse epithelial cell isolation training course is available which will consist of approximately one day hands-on training at a flat rate of $200 per trainee. Additional training for monolayer seeding is $100 per trainee.

Project Consultation:

Feasibility or experimental planning consultation is available at a rate of $50 per hour for users outside of the University of Calgary

Bioassay or custom culture development:

Per project basis grounded in scope, difficulty in development, and time invested into assay development

Ready to use 3D mouse culture plates:

* Base plate cost of $100 per plate, an additional $120 per week of culturing

Mouse culture medium

Optimized for ongoing maintenance of mouse colonoids, $1.00 per mL

Ready to use 3D human culture plates:

* Base plate cost of $120 per plate, an additional $150 per week of culturing

Human culture medium

Optimized for ongoing maintenance of human colonoids, $1.25 per mL

Enteroid monolayers

2D epithelial monolayers on substrate-coated polycarbonate membrane, $15 per well (maintenance and media fees not included).

*Note that all appropriate ethics approvals must be obtained by individual laboratories in accordance with the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (human tissues), Animal Care Committees, and University of Calgary’s guidelines.
