)-- In February 2016, TriFoil Imaging in collaboration with GenMedica Baltic Ltd and assistance of BioVitrum Ltd installed Russia’s first 3D Optical imaging system, the InSyTe FLECT/CT
. The system was installed under the operation of Prof. Evgeny Zavyalov, head of SPF Vivarium Department of Experimental Animal Genetic Resources the Federal Research Center Institute of Cytology and Genetics the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
“TriFoil is honored and excited to have been chosen to provide the Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS with our state of the art FLECT system. ICG SB RAS's selection of FLECT’s powerful combination of true 3D optical imaging with CT further validates the positive impact it brings to preclinical research,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Sean Pitts. “We look forward to working closely with them to ensure they get the most from the technology.” "The uniqueness of this equipment is combination of computed tomography for small animals and True 3D optical tomography which allows us to observe anatomical reference of the animal and processes that take place at molecular level on the combined image,” said Jurijs Dmitrijevs, specialist of GenMedica Baltic Ltd.
Prof. Evgeny Zavyalov, head of SPF Vivarium, “There are similar systems but only this advanced system provides true 3D whole body optical imaging. The InSyTe FLECT/CT system will be used for experimental oncology. The optical imaging will allow for more detailed studies in the field of cardiology, neurology and other areas of science.”
TriFoil Imaging’s state-of-the-art digital molecular imaging products include the InSyTe Series, the first pre-clinical bench-top nuclear and optical imaging systems with in-line CT, the Triumph II, a tri-modality PET/SPECT/CT system, the eXplore CT-120 In-vivo Micro CT scanner and the LabPET solo able to be integrated with any cryogen-free 3.0T MRI and.
