    Equipments Details


    Echo-MRI™ is used to precisely measure whole-body composition parameters: total body fat, lean mass, body fluids, and total body water in live rodents. No anesthesia or sedation is required. Conscious rodents are individually restrained in a clear cylindrical plastic tube (sized by animal weight). The tubes have holes for breathing

    The procedure is ideal for assessing small alterations in whole body composition as a result of genetic mutation or exposure to novel compounds. The system can also be used to measure fresh tissue or biopsy samples.
