Preclinical researchers often utilize a variety of tumor models, including xenografts, orthotopic, and transgenic preparations. Imaging provides researchers the ability to detect, visualize and monitor the developing tumor over the course of a longitudinal study. Further, the images provide insights into tumorigenesis, as well as the efficacy of therapies and other interventions.
Optiscan FIVE2 (ViewnVivo)
The FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) is a miniaturised fluorescence endomicroscope platform that allows the preclinical researcher to acquire confocal images with unparalleled resolution and image quality. Molecular and microvascular events may be observed over the course of a longitudinal study.
Aspect Imaging M-Series™ Compact MRI
The M-SeriesTM Compact MRI systems allow the pre-clinical research to harness the power of MRI without the cost, complexity, and technical burden of conventional systems. MRI is the gold standard in soft tissue imaging facilitating tumor detection and visualization over the the course of a longitudinal study.
