Oxygen Measurement Core

O2M’s "Oxygen Measurement Core" is a contract research facility. It provides full cycle in vitro and small animal in vivo oxygen measurement services. All experiments are performed using O2M’s preclinical oxygen imager, JIVA-25™, that can accommodate sample size up to 40 mm. O2M can carry research projects to its full experimental cycle, from sample preparation and cell seeding to in vitro and small animal in vivo oxygen imaging. O2M can also provide biologic assays and histology assessments, publication quality data/images, and support your submission to peer reviewed journals leading up to publication of the work.

Example Projects:

  1. In vitro longitudinal (hours/days) oxygen assessment of acellular and cell loaded biomaterials, tissue grafts, and cell encapsulation devices

  2. In vivo small animal  longitudinal (days/weeks/months) assessment of biomaterials, tissue grafts, and cell encapsulation devices

  3. In vivo oxygen assessment of tumor growth and response to treatments

Example Samples: 

  1. Biomaterials: Gelatin, Alginate, Agarose, Collagen, Chitosan, PLGA, and other combination experimental biomaterials

  2. Cell encapsulation devices: flat sheet, oxygen generating, 3D printed vascular devices

  3. Small animal tumor models
