Oxygen Measurement Core
The "Oxygen Measurement Core" service facility established using JDRF research fund provides preclinical imaging services to the core members. Please contact O2M personnel for further information.
JIVA-25 animal oxygen imager is based on electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). JIVA-25 delivers 3D oxygen maps of live animals tissues.
JIVA-25 uses relaxation maps of oxygen reporter molecules. Prior to imaging the reporter is injected into an animal. The measurements are not dependent on reporter concentration and even small presence of reporter in the area of interest is sufficient for precise and accurate oxygen measurements.
