(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 webinar in this mini-series, this webinar focused on the specific technical capabilities of the products offered by Scintica.
These products include the following:
- Newton 7.0 – bioluminescence, 3D tomography, fluorescence
- Prospect T1 – high-frequency ultrasound
- M-Series – compact MRI (permanent magnet)
- Super Argus – PET/CT
- FIVE2 – fluorescence in vivo endomicroscopy
In addition to the technical capabilities of each system, example images – including those acquired during the live imaging demonstration held earlier in the mini-series – were shown and reviewed.
