IBT Pre-Clinical Imaging Core-Houston, TX

The purpose of the Pre-Clinical Imaging Core is to provide a platform to support investigators using state-of-the-art dynamic molecular and anatomical imaging technology to accelerate a broad spectrum of basic and pre-clinical studies via non-invasive, live and in vivo fluorescence, bioluminescence and micro-ultrasound imaging system.

  • PerkinElmer IVIS Spectrum In Vivo Imaging System: integrated with 2D optical and 3D optical tomography in one platform, ideal for longitudinal monitoring of disease progression, tumor tracking, cell trafficking and gene expression patterns in living animals.
  • Fujifilm-Visual Sonics Vevo 3100: powerful combination of high frame rates and advanced image processing system, ideal for pre-clinical imaging including disease development, tumorigenesis progression, angiogenesis, hemodynamic changes, animal model phenotype characterization.
