High-end benchtop preclinical imaging

At MOLECUBES we provide three separate benchtop imagers or “CUBES”. The γ-CUBE (SPECT), β-CUBE (PET) and X-CUBE (CT) are perfectly suited for in vivo multimodal whole body rat and mouse imaging. User-friendliness and expert servicing with no compromise on image quality is what we stand for.


The γ-CUBE is our high-resolution, high-sensitivity micro-SPECT scanner using patented collimator design.

The X-CUBE is our high-throughput micro-CT scanner allowing sub-minute acquisition at extremely low doses.

The β-CUBE is our sub-millimeter, high-sensitivity whole body mouse and rat micro-PET scanner.

Although small in footprint and easy to operate we assure high image quality. All cubes are state-of-the-art in terms of resolution, sensitivity and reconstruction software.


Our cubes work like twins. Operating on the same software platforms they function as easily in modular as stand-alone mode.


You decide where and how to design your lab. All systems fit standard lab tables, are (trans)portable and GLP-proof.

MOLECUBES PET/CT at Universitätsklinikum Essen, Germany

MOLECUBES will install its PET/CT full body rat and mouse imaging solution at Universitätsklinikum Essen, Germany in the Preclinical Imaging Laboratory of Prof. Ken Herrmann. Professor Herrmann chairs the Department of Nuclear Medicine. In addition to his clinical focus on modern hybrid imaging technologies and innovative theranostic concepts, Prof. Herrmann aims to contribute and translate preclinical imaging research results more quickly into clinical use. Over the past years he has already led research projects in the field of translational medicine at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).


MOLECUBES SPECT/CT at Uniklinik RWTH Aachen, Germany

MOLECUBES will install a SPECT/CT full body rat and mouse benchtop combination at the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen, Germany in the preclinical imaging laboratory of Prof. Felix Mottaghy. Professor Mottaghy oversees the clinical nuclear medicine practice as well as the preclinical research group focusing on tumor metabolism and oxygenation, cardiac blood circulation, CNS neurotransmitter receptors and new transporters. Moreover the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen received the 2016 and 2017 Top German Hospital Award from Focus.

MOLECUBES is a spin-off of Ghent University and it’s preclinical INFINITY lab. Combining more than 15 years of experience in hardware and software development, all systems are designed and built by a young team who have been end-users themselves. The engineering team is completed by a sales and management team with a long track record in the preclinical arena. We are one call away from helping you out.
