We have microPET and microCAT scanners dedicated to small animals.
We provide consulting services, help with planning and running of experiments, as well as assistance with postprocessing and image analysis.
The microPET scanner from Siemens is a dedicated small animal PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scanner with a very good sensitivity and resolution of a full ring PET system.
The microCAT II scanner from ImTek inc., now Siemens is a versatile, easy to use in vivo small animal micro computed tomography system.
