The M-Series™ Compact MRI systems enable high resolution imaging without the need for special shielding, cryogens or water connections, making it a standalone system that can easily be placed within a core facility, laboratory, or inside an animal facility right next to other equipment or fixtures. Aspect Imaging, global leaders in MRI technology, has designed the M-Series to allow all researchers the ability to harness the power and insights of MRI as quickly and easily as 3D echo and other mobile imaging modalities that are used today.
Preclinical Research Solutions
M-Series™ Compact MRI
The M-Series™ compact, high-performance, easy-to-use MRI systems allow preclinical researchers, without prior knowledge of MR physics, to now have cost-effective access to the gold standard method of soft tissue imaging for morphological and contrast agent applications. Advanced users will enjoy the flexibility of the customization options available.
The SimPET™ system is a hardware insert to a preclinical MRI system for the simultaneous acquisition of PET and MRI images. Using silicon photo multiplier technology, the insert expands the functionality of the M7 system with simultaneous PET/MRI image acquisition in rodents. The SimPET™ insert may also be used on other commercially available preclinical MRI systems if desired.
The VivoFuseTM solution allows the preclinical researcher to fuse 3D optical tomographic images (bioluminescence imaging or fluorescence lifetime imaging ) with the MR images acquired on either of the M-SeriesTM systems. Combined, the fused data provides the value of both molecular and soft-tissue imaging on the same animal model.
The histology insert enables high-throughput, high resolution, 3D imaging of fixed samples. These images may be used for toxicology studies to help detect, localize, and quantify lesions within an organ sample. The histology insert expands the functionality of either the M3 or the M7 systems from Aspect Imaging.
