Vascupaint™ lead-free silicone injection compounds for ex vivo imaging of vasculature with micro-CT, microscopy, and NIR/SWIR fluorescence imaging.  The injection compounds come in five different colors including yellow (bismuth-based micro-CT) and green (pigment green for NIR/SWIR). Vascupaint™ is a less viscous alternative to conventionally used lead-based Microfil compounds.

The 3D reconstructed images were obtained from microCT images acquired with scans at a resolution of 6 microns on a SkyScan 1276 imaging system. Brain organs were harvested following perfusion with MediLumine’s Vascupaint™ silicone injection compound containing X-ray attenuating bismuth pigments.
