MR-Based Histology System for Toxicological Imaging
Mon, 2013-03-11 12:14
Aspect Imaging announced the launch of its M2 3D MR-based histology system for in vivo and ex vivo toxicological imaging. The system is a compact, high-performance MRI instrument for high-throughput in vivo and ex vivo imaging of pre-clinical samples. The system provides all of the benefits of MRI, including high-resolution 3D images of anatomical morphology and quantitative information of disease progression and regression. The system’s design is based on an innovative permanent magnet design meaning that the magnet does not require costly cryogens to cool and maintain its magnetic field. It is also “self-shielded” and, consequently, there is virtually no external fringe magnetic field. As a result, the compact MRI can be placed in most locations in a research lab and it does not require any special infrastructure. With the system, research labs can leverage the power of 3D morphological imaging to compliment and guide traditional histology, and do so with a system that is affordable, easy to install, easy to operate by a technician with no imaging experience and with the benefit of high-resolution digital images.
