Vascupaint™ lead-free silicone injection compounds fill and opacify the microvasculature structures for 3D ex vivo imaging using micro-CT, brightfield microscopy, or SWIR fluorescence imaging.
The injection compounds are available in two different colors including yellow for micro-CT imaging and green for SWIR fluorescence imaging as well as clear for your custom preparations. Other colors are available upon request.
Vascupaint™ is a less viscous alternative to conventionally used lead-based Microfil compounds making it easier to perfuse non-surviving organisms as well as human organs for ex vivo 3D vascular cast analysis.
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.
