Cryofluorescence Tomography: A 3D Imaging Modality and its Applications in Drug Discovery
Wednesday, November 14th
Hemi Dimant, PhD, Director of Applications for Advanced Pathology Services, Invicro
Robert Holt, PhD, Senior Scientist, Invicro
In this webinar, we will demonstrate CFT and show its applications to drug discovery. CFT is an ex vivo fluorescence imaging modality in which serial sectioning and blockface image acquisition is conducted throughout the sample. Using Invicro’s VivoQuant® software platform, fluorescent images are reconstructed into a 3D molecular image at mesoscopic resolution that is natively co-registered to a 3D anatomical white light volume. CFT can be used as a complimentary ex vivo endpoint for a longitudinal study and supports standard histology and immunostaining by enabling inline section collection, thus bridging in vivo imaging and conventional ex vivo histopathology.
