High-end benchtop preclinical imaging

Latest news



In December 2018, MOLECUBES installed a PET/SPECT/CT whole-body rat and mouse benchtop imaging solution at CIC biomaGUNE, San Sebastian, Spain. This new generation of preclinical nuclear imaging systems will open up new opportunities for compound screening, drug optimization and to detect lesions and pathways that remained undiscovered before. MOLECUBES is very excited to have their first installation in Spain in this internationally recognised center and to work with Prof. Dr. Jordi Llop.


β-CUBE delivers high-performance small-animal PET

“The scanner has excellent spatial resolution that is uniform over the imaging FOV, due to its ability to compensate for parallax error in the image reconstruction process,” explains Krishnamoorthy. “This capability is due to the sophisticated monolithic detectors that enable the DOI of the gamma rays within the crystal to be measured.”

The MOLECUBES β-CUBE was recently featured in an excellent article in Physics World. We encourage you to read the full article in Physics World. If you want to read the original paper, please find it at IOPSCIENCE.


MOLECUBES next generation molecular imaging

One of the strengths of MOLECUBES’ systems is its modularity. Thanks to the stand-alone, compact design, combinations with or back-up to existing equipment in the field is feasible. Adding a β-CUBE or (X- or γ-CUBE) to your existing imaging portfolio enables you to increase throughput in case of a worn-out system or to prepare replacing your previous generation PET or SPECT-system without downtime.

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.

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 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.
