Farncombe Family Axenic-Gnotobiotic Facility

McMaster University is home to the Farncombe Family Axenic-Gnotobiotic Facility, Canada’s only gnotobiotic research facility with axenic embryo transfer capabilities. This 3,000-square-foot laboratory provides a controlled, germ-free environment in which to study host-microbial interactions. In addition to generating and housing gnotobiotic animals on prescribed genetic backgrounds for internal and external clients, the Facility is unique in that it has the capacity and infrastructure to enable the performance of long-term experimentation under controlled environmental conditions in diverse areas of biomedical sciences.
