Next-Generation Volumetric Animal and Tissue Imaging by Cryo-Fluorescence Tomography
Speaker: Matt Silva, Ph.D., EMIT Imaging
Hosted by: Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF), Sarah Chapman, Associate Director
Description: Cryo-fluorescence tomography (CFT) is whole-animal volumetric imaging with high resolution and sensitivity. In this seminar, you will learn how CFT uniquely enables researchers to overcome the significant challenge of comprehensively documenting drug distribution, protein expression, and other biochemical processes throughout the entire tissue or animal. EMIT Imaging, the leader in CFT instrumentation and services, has developed XerraTM, a state-of-the-art CFT platform currently used by pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic researchers across a broad range of application areas in preclinical research, including whole-body drug distribution, screening candidate drugs and delivery systems, whole-body therapeutic protein expression, multiplexed co-localization of drugs with targets, and on-target/off-target tissue identification.
