In vivo imaging laboratory

In vivo imaging laboratory

To observe and characterize patho-morphologic changes, distribution of active compounds and pathogens in organisms, we use noninvasive whole-body imaging techniques, including X-ray microtomography, in vivo fluorescence and bioluminescence. Small-animal whole-body in vivo imaging allows us to simultaneously monitor continuous biological processes in the same animal and can also reduce the number of animals for experimentation. Thus, it is in agreement with 3R principles. We use both mice and rat models in our lab. In addition, imaging modalities can serve for some ex-vivo and in-vitro studies.
