Academic and pharmaceutical researchers commonly use mice and small animals for investigations of genetics, cellular physiology, and of agents affecting bone or soft tissue composition. Bone and tissue composition measurement using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurement eliminates the need for destructive chemical analysis, a time and laborconsuming process that requires days or weeks to complete.
DXA measurement allows the researcher the opportunity to make multiple measurements in situ during the life of the animal – providing true longitudinal measures. Unfortunately, the spatial resolution of table DXA measurement is too poor for mice and the rectilinear scanning process require too much time for a total body acquisition with relatively poor precision and spatial resolution. The long process requires careful sedation techniques and often endangers animal safety. Launched by Medikors Inc., InAlyzer provides bone mineral density and body composition results from total body imaging in less than 60 seconds by quick mode. Additionally, InAlyzer give nearly zero X-ray radiation to researcher with internal protection structure.
