Ensuring you collect the best and most physiologically accurate data from your chronic telemetry experiments requires careful planning and experimental design. This webinar gave an insight into the practical aspects of designing chronic animal experiments to set you on

(October 8, 2020) WEBINAR: Using EKG to Confirm MI in Mouse Model of Permanent LAD Occlusion

The mechanisms involved in the progression of heart failure includes cardiomyocyte death, initiation of the inflammatory response, and subsequent formation of a fibrotic scar. For this reason, diverse experimental models, such as cultured cardiac cells, isolated hearts, and animal

(October 6, 2020) WEBINAR: Overview of Scintica’s Preclinical Imaging Product Portfolio: Technical Capabilities (Preclinical Imaging Learning Mini-Series)

During this 60-minute webinar, the last part of our preclinical imaging learning mini-series, we discussed the specific imaging systems included in Scintica Instrumentation's imaging product portfolio. While we reviewed the four W’s (what, when, where, why) in our first

(October 1, 2020) LIVE DEMONSTRATION: Understanding the Complimentary Nature of BLI, Ultrasound, and MRI for Preclinical Imaging (Preclinical Imaging Learning Mini-Series)

This was a full day of live imaging where we examined the complimentary nature of three preclinical imaging modalities – bioluminescence, high-frequency ultrasound, and MRI. We imaged the same tumor models on each of the imaging modalities; but

(September 24, 2020) WEBINAR: The Four Ws of Preclinical Small Animal Imaging; What, When, Where & Why (Preclinical Imaging Learning Mini-Series)

Preclinical imaging is greatly enhancing the way researchers and clinicians visualize and understand biological phenomena and various mechanisms of disease in vivo. Slide Deck On Demand Q & A

(August 26, 2020) WEBINAR: Bedside to Bench: How Clinical Imaging of Patients with COVID-19 is Informing Preclinical Investigations in this Exploding Area of Research

In this webinar presented by Scintica Instrumentation, we took a look at both clinical and preclinical imaging of COVID-19. Starting with a review of current literature surrounding clinical imaging and post-mortem histological autopsy studies of patients with

(August 18, 2020) WEBINAR: Inflammation and the Resolution of Inflammation in Heart Failure: Preclinical and Clinical Findings

This webinar hosted by Scintica Instrumentation looked primarily at inflammation and the resolution of inflammation in the preclinical mouse model. Physiological short-term inflammation is a primary signal of the immune system activation that is an important defense

(August 12, 2020) WEBINAR: The 4 W’s of Microcirculation and Tissue pO2: An in vivo Approach in Animal Models for Preclinical Research

WHEN and WHERE to measure these parameters? WHY measure both? WHAT can I use to measure both? Slide Deck Q & A The survival of tissues and organs
