The Center for Comparative Medicine and Bioimaging (CMCiB) opens the new facilities for research in and with bioimaging

/ / Uncategorized

IGTP’s CMCiB has three small animal bioimaging devices: a CT scan, a bioluminescence device, and an infrared device. The latest additions to the installation are: 3Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging, an RX Room for Interventions, a Surgical Arch and an Ultrasound.

This equipment will be able to carry out excellent follow-up studies, with the high traceability of the molecules labeled for infrared visualization, which is especially relevant in vascular studies. Thanks to bioluminescence, a huge variety of markers will be included that are likely to be linked to metabolic reactions or to gene transduction processes. Also, the 3T RM will allow three-dimensional reconstructions.
