The pre-clinical imaging facility offers imaging technology for the research community by providing access to in vivo imaging equipment.
Online scheduling is available only to those individuals who have received training on equipment. Review the Imaging guideline on how to receive training.
The Newton 7.0 FT500 is capable of both bioluminescence (2D and 3D tomography) as well as fluorescence imaging.
Designed for preclinical in vivo imaging of small animals with a fully automated heated stage and an integrated anesthesia system – allowing for up to 5 mice to be imaged simultaneously. (Also capable of ex vivo and in vitro applications.)
Camera – wide aperture (f/0.7) 16-bit cooled CCD camera
Fluorescence – 8 LED excitation channels, and 8 narrow bandpass emission filters for a wide array of fluorophores (420nm – 780nm).
MILabs’ U-CT is extremely fast and offers ultra-high resolution at low X-ray doses enabling demanding multispecies 3D/4D in vivo applications, including dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) CT imaging. The system allows for dual-gated cardiac and respiratory imaging for freeze-frame acquisitions and features sensor-free respiratory gating for imaging up to four mice simultaneously and medium-sized animals.
