PET/CT: Frequently Asked Questions

What is PET/CT Imaging? PET/CT imaging is the combination of two distinct imaging techniques. a What is PET Imaging? PET, or positron emission tomography, is a look at the metabolic or biochemical activity present in a given anatomical region using radiotracers. a What is a radiotracer? A radiotracer is a chemical compound in which

Cancer biology and High-Frequency Ultrasound: non-invasive identification, visualization, and quantification in a wide variety of preclinical tumor models

Ultrasound has become a widely used preclinical imaging modality that can be used to visualize a variety of internal structures within small animal models with high resolution (down to 30µm). This provides researchers with primary structural information in real-time allowing for the non-invasive quantification of organ/tumor parameters in both two- and three-dimensions, as well

𝘐𝘯 𝘷𝘪𝘷𝘰 intermittent hypoxia: New chambers give researchers dynamic and controlled O₂ environment to enhance research

Intermittent hypoxia (IH), also referred to as hypoxia-reoxygenation, is a condition where periods of normal tissue oxygen pressure (normoxia) cycle with periods of low tissue oxygen pressure (hypoxia). This alternating lack of oxygen is associated with various forms of the respiratory illness, sleep apnea. Those afflicted with sleep apnea can see oxygen fluctuate dramatically

Investigating the role of metabolism in human induced pluripotent stem cell generation

This team of researchers in the Biology Department at Western University are investigating metabolic ways to increase efficiency of reprogramming adult cells to iPSCs. Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent, which means they can turn into any cell type found in the adult body and are therefore critical for human development1. Stem cells show great promise in

Counting Highly Dense Colonies

Perhaps you’ve been there - looking at a colony formation assay (CFA) where there are hundreds (or thousands) of colonies of various sizes and wondering “how can I possibly count all of these colonies accurately”? The logistical problem becomes even more difficult when you realize you should only be counting colonies over 30μm and

WEBINAR: What is hyperoxia, normoxia and hypoxia to cells: Why researchers should care about environmental oxygen and how it influences results

What oxygen levels are you using in your cellular research? Are your cells under hyperoxia, normoxia, hypoxia, or are you unsure? This free webinar hosted by Scintica Instrumentation provided our audience with an overview on the effects of oxygen during in vitro cell culturing. Further, the discussion focused on how to accurately
