MOLECUBES: preclinical in-vivo imaging systems

At MOLECUBES, we believe that molecular imaging should be accessible to every research lab. MOLECUBES has therefore made it its mission to lower the barrier to preclinical PET, SPECT and CT imaging by providing compact, intuitive, flexible benchtop imaging solutions with the highest performance, supported by fast and simple workflows.

The X-CUBE, ɣ-CUBE and β-CUBE are the most compact micro-CT, micro-SPECT and micro-PET scanners in the field of molecular small-animal imaging. They are designed to work both as stand-alone units and in modular combinations. Thanks to their benchtop design and total ease of use, MOLECUBES systems pave the way to the next generation of whole-body mouse and rat scanners.

With more than 100 CUBES installed worldwide, MOLECUBES is a trusted partner by your side.

What makes MOLECUBES stand out?

Drug discovery
Example study
Zebrafish PET-CT imaging

The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a frequently used animal model to study human disease, since the majority of molecular and cellular mechanisms are conserved between zebrafish and humans. In addition, mutations can be introduced easily to mimic human disease.

Core lab
Example study
Brain imaging in rats and mice

In this study, PET/MR imaging was performed on mice and rat brains. Thanks to the sub-millimeter spatial resolution of our PET-system, small brain structures including the striatum, thalamus, and cerebral cortex, among others, could be differentiated. The MR-data was acquired on a 7T Pharmascan (Bruker).

Translational imaging
Example study
Cardiac-gated PET imaging in mice and rats

In cardiac research, non-invasive measurements of left ventricular end-systolic volume (ESV), end-diastolic volume (EDV) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) are a useful tool to evaluate and monitor cardiac functioning.
