TISSUE OXYGEN SCANNING TECHNOLOGY
- A unique needle probe allows measuring dissolved oxygen at any point along the shaft of the needle.
- NO MECHANICAL MOVEMENT OF THE NEEDLE WITH RESPECT TO THE TISSUE while scanning.
- OPTIMALLY DESIGNED FOR ANIMAL STUDIES.
A-Scan tissue oxygen scanner is uniqely designed for reseachers. It combines a rugged design for repeated use in tissue with an easy and intuitive depth scanning.
The Blueberry Test
Blueberry in a water tank.
Needle probe is inserted through the blueberry
Spatial distribution of dissolved oxygen in the blueberry
Temporal response at a fixed position (14mm) to abrupt removal of the blueberry
An Application Example
Probe positioning in a tumor in a hindlimb of a mouse
Tissue oxygen scan through a cancer tumor. Hypoxic core is observed
