Phenotype Core

Surgical Models: Current Rat, Mouse and Rabbit Models:

RatratModel1

Standard excision wound model, with six wounding sites, typically 6mm in diameter. Can be combined with injectable or implantable materials.

Mouse
mouseModel1

Incision with multiple dead space wounds (sponge implant), shown here on ventral aspect. Injection of test material into sponge as needed or specified by protocol.

Rat
ratModel2

Excision wounds with contracture mitigation. Can also be combined with injectable or implantable materials.

Mouse
mouseModel2

Excision wounds with or without implantable or injectable test materials. Shown on the dorsum.

Rat
ratModel3

Standard excision wounds placed in surgically created ischemic area. Can also be combind with injectable or implantable materials.

Rabbit
rabbit-model

The rabbit wound healing model utilizes a unique punching method which excises the skin without damaging the underlying cartilage. This method provides structural support for the wound edges and eliminates the need for contracture mitigation.

Rat
ratModel4

Excision wounds with contracture mitigation feature with surgically created ischemic area, with ot without injectable or implantable materials.
