On Thursday June 27th, 2019 at 5:00 AM (U.S. EST) Agilent Site Reliability Engineers will be working with our Network Service Provider to upgrade the API server for the North American instance. The entire process is expected to be 1 hour, and iLab customers using the API for any features may experience a decrease in performance during this time. More information can be found on the iLab Status Site. For any questions, please contact iLab Support at or by clicking on the 'Help' link at the top of your account page.

VUMC Cardiovascular Physiology Core (CPC)

Overview of Services

The objective of the VUMC Cardiovascular Physiology Core (CPC) is to provide investigators at Vanderbilt and outside institutions a cost-effective means to accurately assess cardiovascular phenotypes in mouse models of diabetes and metabolic disease. The CPC uses validated approaches and state-of-the-art instrumentation that allow for sensitive screening of phenotypic variations. The CPC offers several surgical techniques to induce myocardial injury (infarction, aortic banding, and ischemia/reperfusion injury).
