The Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biotechnology (FBBB) at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków recently became the first institute in Poland to install MILabs’ Adaptive U-CT for in-vivo preclinical imaging.

To accommodate the diverse in-vivo imaging needs of the FBBB, including imaging of bones and ossicles plus soft tissues in mice and larger rodents, the university decided to acquire Milabs unique Adaptive CT, a system that can adapt to researchers’ applications so that users don’t have to adapt their research.

Explaining his facility’s decision to select the Adaptive U-CT/XUHR, prof. dr hab. Jan Potempa – Head of Microbiology Department, FBBB at the Jagiellonian University, said, ”We were looking for a single versatile microCT to handle the wide variety of research needs of our Faculty consisting of 17 Departments and Laboratories, while being able to provide high-quality images to meet their specific needs”.

Prof. F. Beekman, CEO/CSO of MILabs: “We are pleased that the most preeminent university of Poland has decided to select our Adaptive U-CT system for its core imaging research. Thanks to our radiation dose efficient design, our microCT is indeed able to handle the most demanding preclinical in-vivo X-ray imaging applications.
