Imaging

At TRACERâ„¢ we have preclinical and clinical imaging modalities available. We have the most up to date molecular imaging systems available at the Groningen Small Animal Imaging (GRONSAI) facility, such as IVIS Spectrum, IVIS Lumina II, FMT2500, microCT, uSPECT, small animal PET and MRI. For molecular fluorescence guided imaging, open-air, laparoscopy and flexible endoscopy animal imaging systems are available. Besides in vivo imaging, we have the necessary state-of-the-art equipment for ex vivo validation of your fluorescent tracer in tissue specimens, including SurgVision Explorer Vault, Odyssey flat-bed scanner, MultiFiber Diffuse Spectroscopy (MFDS) and (near-infared) fluorescence microscopy.

To execute clinical studies, we have several camera systems in which your tracer can be evaluated for open-air surgery, minimal invasive surgery (laparoscopy / robot-assisted), image-guided pathology, flexible endoscopy and confocal laserendomicroscopy. In case you have a preference for a particular camera system, we are in the unique position of having access to any camera system on a per project base since several camera companies have chosen us as their reference center.
