The Insectarium propose the following procedures:

The building’s technological flagship is its level 3 biosafety laboratory designed to perform experimental infections of insects or vertebrates in order to study their role as vector and/or reservoir and to understand the interactions between hosts and pathogenic, particularly for arboviruses.

With a total surface area of 100 m2, composed of five rooms as well as its own laundry, the laboratory is notably equipped with several microbiological safety stations as well as all the prescribed and necessary equipment.

The production and research complex of Pasteur Institute of Iran was founded in 1988 on the Tehran Karaj Highway. It was established to meet the increasing population demand for products such as various solutions and vaccines and providing requirements for research like different laboratory animals

The aims of the Department of Animal Models for Biomedical Research (DAMBR) are the breeding, supply and use of laboratory animals for modeling human pathologies and for developing cutting-edge technologies in academic and research areas, for performing toxicological and preclinical studies in pharmaceutical industry, and for academic education. DAMBR collaborates with the groups and technological infrastructures of HPI and supports their research projects.

The Animal Experimentation and High Technology Platform (PLEHTA) is specialized in hosting and establishing rodent animal models under highly controlled containment conditions. The platform includes multiple animal facilities (SPF, SOPF, biosafety levels 2 and 3), allowing maximum flexibility for the wide variety of demands by research groups from different disciplines including infections, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, metabolism, oncology, pharmacology and toxicology.

The Mouse Genetics Engineering Center (Centre d’Ingénierie Génétique Murine, CIGM) is the Institut Pasteur’s transgenic mouse core facility. Since its creation in 2003, the CIGM aims to generate new models of transgenic mice by classical or targeted transgenesis. Classical (additive) transgenesis, which includes lentiviral transgenesis, is based on a random insertion of an exogenous gene. Targeted transgenesis consists in a deletion or a specific modification in an endogenous locus using homologous recombination in Embryonic Stem (ES) cells or, more recently, by directly using specific nucleases.
