Access Information

We operate under a range of modes for internal, academic collaborations and external scientists. For academic collaborations, we have the capacity to conduct experiments for the collaborator, or provide the collaborator in-house access to conduct key experiments within the facility.

External researchers can book and pay for the use of the facility equipment by first contacting the facility manager.
For commercial partners, SVI laboratories will perform experiments under subcontract. Our company, Effica Biolabs, can perform pre-clinical studies on immune system and animal models on a contract.
