Dedicated animal cells and monitoring systems
Animal beds and cells
MILabs’ transparent animal imaging beds can be easily converted to closed imaging U-cells for pathogen-free imaging. They are equipped with anesthesia cones and heater pads for optimal animal comfort. The beds can easily be mounted onto, and removed from, MILabs’ systems and also facilitate smooth transfer to other modalities such as MRI. The beds allow for open access to the animal during acquisition or can be closed. There is continuous visual monitoring of the animal by optical cameras. Custom beds are available upon request.
Animal holders for hybrid FLT/CT and BLT/CT imaging.
Animals can be anesthetized with an optional gas anesthesia system with built-in vaporizer and flow meter. Precise automatic control of anesthetic and air minimizes anesthetic consumption.
Gating, heating and monitoring
An integrated system is available for animal monitoring, automatic animal temperature regulation, and multiple physiological event triggering. This enables flexible triggering, e.g. combined respiratory and cardiac gating.
Optical docking station
Animals can easily be positioned, injected and prepared using movable docking stations. These can be used either on the bench or inside a fume-hood.
Different sized hotrod phantoms are available.
