NEPRC serves as an important regional resource to the biomedical
research community. It offers a broad spectrum of services,
ranging from analysis of tissue specimens to partnership investigations

Consultation is a core service of NEPRC. Each year, hundreds
of scientists from around the world turn to the Center for
diagnostic support, clinical advice, expertise in primate
biology, and development of experimental protocols.
Among the Center's many services, a modern flow cytometry
facility provides state-of-the-art immunophenotyping and cell
sorting. A number of unique antibodies and reagents have been
developed at NEPRC for use by Center scientists as well as

Supporting the diagnostic services and research programs,
the Center operates electron and confocal microscopy facilities
and image analysis systems.
With extensive links to primate libraries and archives worldwide,
