Small animal positron emission tomography-computed (PET-TC) Camera and radioactive isotope room

  • Non-invasive functional in vivo studies to reveal and monitor biochemical processes at the molecular level.
  • Use in many applications, including the development of new drugs, study of human diseases in animals (oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, etc.), and characterization of gene expression and phenotype changes resulting from genetic manipulation.
  • The glucose analogue 18-FDG can now be measured, however, depending on the project, PET-CT equipment can also determine any positron emitting radiopharmaceutical.
  • Using CT it is possible to study the anatomical morphology of animals and merge them with the corresponding metabolic imaging. The advanced features of the equipment means that soft tissue, bone tissue, etc. can also be studied.
  • Micro PET / CT, ALBIRA-ARS: allows to obtain images from both or from only one of them.
  • Dosimeter ISOMED 1010, MICROBEAM Inc.: allows to calculate the activity of the radiopharmaceutical in the syringe before the injection.
  • Laminar flow hood.
  • Anesthesia equipment for small animals with accessories and flow-meter rotameter for oxygen

 

  • UCIM, Floor 2E, Zone 2, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Valencia
