The MIGAL Pre-Clinical Unit is an autonomous laboratory, offering diverse infrastructure for pre-clinical experiments. The unit has facilities for in vitro studies (cell and tissue culture), ex vivo studies
(e.g. analysis of the response of small blood vessels to hormones and other agonists), and in vivo studies (analysis of animal metabolism and body composition). Additionally, the unit provides histological services that range from tissue dissection to image analysis. Advanced interactive services can be provided on a more collaborative basis.
In addition to the Pre Clinic Unit our laboratory conducts research on the influences different types of functional water on Health.
