Simultaneous PET/MRI Imaging
Cubresa introduces the NuPET™ in-bore Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner for molecular imaging in small-animal research using your existing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system. Preclinical researchers can non-invasively generate 3D images of biochemical processes in live animals. This clinically translatable technology has the sensitivity to track compound distribution in vivo, and is paired with the anatomical imaging technique of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to quantify tracer concentrations in organs of interest.
The BrainPET is a PET insert for a 3T MRI scanner that provides simultaneous PET/MR imaging capacity. The BrainPET is currently under development with the aim of providing a higher PET spatial resolution and sensitivity than commercially available whole-body hybrid systems
Incredibly flexible, the NuPET system can be used in multiple MRIs within a research lab. Completely mobile, the insert can be moved and inserted into various systems as required. This feature enables research groups to share equipment and move NuPET across the lab, down the hall, or to another building. Alternatively, NuPET can also be used as a stand-alone PET imaging system, when simultaneous imaging is not required.
Cubresa’s NuPET Bio is the world’s first lightweight and portable preclinical PET scanner, specially designed for use with highly infectious pathogens. The device allows researchers to conduct work on SARS-CoV-2, and other viruses and bacteria, directly in BSL-3 labs without the need for extensive retrofits of the lab space, saving researchers and institutions valuable time and money.
