Technical Platform


V O X C A N gets a high technological platform with its own medical imaging systems :


A last generation X-ray scanner (CT) for medium sized animal


X-ray computed tomography (CT) gives 3-dimensional images of naturally opaque tissues or made dense by the injection of a contrast agent. X-ray CT scanner permits relevant image acquisitions on animal models from rabbit to 200kg pig (ring diameter of the scanner is 70cm). 3D images have an isotropic resolution with a minimum pixel size of 190µm. Minimum slice thickness is 500µm.





Micro X-ray scanner (µ-CT) X for small animals


The micro X-ray scanner dedicated to small animal performs relevant image acquisitions on small animal models from mouse to guinea-pig (the useful tunnel diameter is 80mm) 3D images have an isotropic resolution in all three directions. Voxel sizes can vary from 90µm down to 20µm with acquisition times ranging from 6 to 100 min.






Optical Molecular Tomograph

Optical molecular imaging allows the in vivo detection of biochemical processes in small animal models.This technique is very sensitive since few tens of labeled cells can be followed as well as very small doses of drugs. Bioluminescence imaging permits the realization of efficacy studies in oncology and in infectious diseases fields. Fluorescence imaging gives access to in vivo whole body biodistribution studies.This imaging technique is extremely sensitive on small animals (small absorption and diffusion processes) and most molecule labeling processes remain easy to handle. Image resolutions range from 20µm to 2mm depending on the study constraints (Region of interest surfaces, signal intensity etc.).Our imaging systemcan perform 2D or 3D acquisitions.






Biosafety level 1 laboratory (BSL-1)


V O X C A N facility houses a BSL-1 laboratory equipped with a biosafety cabinet (BSC class II) to realize your preclinical studies.







Biosafety level 2 animal unit (ABSL-2)


V O X C A N has access, via the "Institut Claude Bourgelat” (ICl-B), to an ABSL-2 animal unit used for preclinical studies on infectious diseases.
