Domaines d’expertises

Study of cardiovascular function and oncological imaging in vivo.

Services offerts

A bioluminescence or fluorescence imaging system (IVIS Spectrum)
– A high frequency ultrasound system (VEVO-3100)
– An EMKA physiological parameter acquisition and analysis system including pressure, velocity and surface ECG
– Millar micro catheters
– A caudal plethysmography of Hatteras
– A telemetry system from Data Science International

More specifically, we offer:

Study of the cardiovascular system: echocardiography, surface electrocardiography, blood pressure by sphygmomanometer, Millar catheter or telemetry, measurement of the intima media and vascular stiffness (pulse wave velocity) by ultrasound.

Oncological imaging study in vivo: Measurement of the size in two or three dimensions and angiogenesis of primary tumors or metastases by ultrasound, monitoring of tumors and development of metastases by bioluminescence or fluorescence imaging of cancer cells in vivo.
