In vivo optical / X-ray Imaging
The BSRC Fleming offers high-resolution in vivo imaging services and support for studies involving mouse models of inflammation and cancer. It is equipped with the In-Vivo Xtreme Imaging System from Bruker, which can be used for the imaging examination of living mice over time. The system offers quantitative high sensitivity imaging of luminescent, radioisotopic, and multi-wavelength fluorescent labeled biomolecules in combination with radiographic and reflectance imaging, providing a powerful and versatile in vivo imaging system for small animals.
The services provided include:
X-ray imaging - primary phenotyping
X-ray imaging - bone density monitoring
Bioluminescence for acute/chronic inflammation monitoring
Bioluminescence/Fluorescence for tumor models monitoring
Fluorescence for cell apoptosis monitoring
