High-end benchtop preclinical imaging

Latest news


PET/PET/CT at KU Leuven

The Molecular Small Animal Imaging Center core facility (MoSAIC) at KU Leuven has significantly expanded its preclinical PET capability with a PET PET CT setup from MOLECUBES. The combination of 2 β-CUBEs with 1 X-CUBE will enable unprecedented throughput whilst maintaining best-in-class image quality. The addition of this platform to the existing state-of-the-art in vivo imaging infrastructure, in combination with the extensive expertise for the non-invasive and longitudinal assessment of preclinical disease and therapy models at MoSAIC, will accelerate translational imaging research at KU Leuven – ensuring KU Leuven remains at the forefront of preclinical imaging and breakthrough research.


PET/CT at Ospedale San Raffaele

MOLECUBES and Radius have recently installed a preclinical benchtop whole body rat PET/CT in Milan (Italy) at San Raffaele Hospital and Scientific Institute, as a joint collaboration among the Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology of the Italian National Research Council (IBFM-CNR), San Raffaele Hospital and the Department of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Milan Bicocca. This state of the art set up allows investigators in the area to access in vivo molecular PET/CT imaging in mice and rat. This preclinical imaging platform, that is part of the European infrastructure framework Eurobioimaging, will foster research mainly in oncology and neurology axes and ensure training of a future generation of molecular imaging specialists in Italy. MOLECUBES is very excited with this first installation in Italy and is looking forward to be part of the future research projects with the preclinical imaging group at San Raffaele Hospital; a Centre with an expertise recognized world wide in the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.


PET/SPECT/CT at Wiener Neustadt

MOLECUBES and Oncomed Solutions have recently installed a trimodal PET/SPECT/CT whole body rat and mouse benchtop preclinical imaging system at the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt, Austria. Within a collaboration between the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt, the Medical University of Vienna and MedAustron – a center for ion therapy and research, located in Wiener Neustadt, basic and applied biomedical research in the field of radiooncology, radiobiology and medical physics will be carried out to foster the understanding about specific (patho)physiological processes of a variety of different tumor entities and to facilitate the integration in the field of radiation therapy planning, verification and treatment monitoring. Moreover it will enable an educational platform for the next generation of preclinical imaging scientists as well as further enhance the preclinical imaging research in Austria. MOLECUBES is very proud to collaborate with these top institutes and to contribute to training and educate new preclinical imaging researchers under this initiative led by Dr. Markus Zeilinger.

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.
