Animal handling, flow and scanning platform

We believe that acquiring qualitative images in a reproducible way starts with keeping the small animal parameters stable and having both intuitive user interfaces and scanning protocols. Hence we provide in-house developed small animal beds that monitor the animal’s vital parameters and are compatible with standard preclinical MRI-systems. We assure you different datasets are coregistered automatically through in-house developed bed stages and animal beds. Once acquired, reconstructed and fused, image data are compatible with most common image analysis packages available in the market. Finally, our Best Uptime Servicing or “BUS”-service model is unique in the market.

Animal Handling

MOLECUBES' animal bed and docking station are shown. Bed heating, ECG and respiratory monitoring of the animal are assured. Easy and fast fixation of the animal is shown through a unique fleece system. Vital sign monitoring on the tablet is guaranteed from the moment the bed is inserted into one of the CUBES.

Dynamic Scanning (PET/CT)

The flow and ease with which to set up a dymanic PET/CT on MOLECUBES' benchtop systems. At the same time time the ease of performing fast full body rat scanning is shown.

Multimodal Flow and coregistration

The flow in a Multi-modal benchtop set-up as well as the automatic coregistration are shown. The ease of animal and bed handling and scan set-up enable almost anyone to scan intuitively.
Software
In-house developed graphical user interfacing as well as a standard set of protocols allow for expert as well as non-expert users to start using any CUBE in less than 10 clicks.
Animal Handling
Our rat and mouse beds are compatible with all CUBES and provide heating, anaesthesia and ECG-monitoring. Tail vein injections while scanning are made easy through an accompanying docking station.
Service
Our Best Uptime Service model guarantees that we will swap any defect system within 3 business days, assuring as little downtime as possible. All systems are also continuously monitored remotely.
Benchtop
All cubes are 54x54x54 cm3 in surface and weigh anywhere between 60-105 kgs. They need no external hardware or software and are (trans)portable from one lab room to the other.
Modular
Start with any cube you desire and add one when you need it. If high troughput is what you are after, multiple CUBES from any modality can be stacked or used side-by-side or in a modular mode.
Fast
All CUBES use statistical iterative reconstruction techniques. We exclusively reconstruct on GPUs, so your reconstructions are only minutes away. This leaves you time to focus on what matters: quantitative data analysis.
