For mice, rats and marmosets
The MRS*PET/CT Benchtop is an in-line scanner incorporating a motorised bed with a sub-millimetre precision, allowing the animal to be scanned automatically without any manual intervention from the operator.
The benchtop design from MR Solutions provides perfect co-registration of the images between each modality, thus avoiding the users having to move the animal manually from one modality to the other.
The compactness and the light weight of of the MRS*PET/CT Benchtop permits its installation on any bench and in any small or restricted environment where traditional floor standing units cannot fit.

MRS systems use Minerve animal handling system. Much more than a simple animal bed for preclinical imagers, the Minerve system provides a well-controlled environment for handling lab animals and plays a critical role in obtaining accurate, reproducible imaging results, while also maintaining each animal’s health and the safety of the surrounding lab environment.
