DERMCUP: Ultrasound scanner for small animal imaging
Imaging of small laboratory animals
DERMCUP is a high resolution ultrasound scanner designed specifically for the imaging of small laboratory animals, such as mice.
DERMCUP allows the acquisition in real time and non-invasively of 16 mm x 12 mm vertical cuts for in vivo assessment of anatomical structures.
High resolution ultrasound scanner
Thanks to its high frequency (25 MHz), DERMCUP offers spatial resolution down to 30 microns:
Axial: 30 µm
Lateral: 120 µm
Real time acquisition of the images
The acquisition frequency of the high resolution ultrasound scanner is 10 images per second.
The probe of the high resolution ultrasound scanner can be easily moved during the examination.
Confortable handling of the probe.
Two probe types are available
Dermcup imaging station
The Dermcup imaging station allows for quick set-up, alignment and adjustment of the ultrasound probe, anesthetized mouse and if required the injection system (for image guided injection applications)
