What type of equipment do I need to do in-life imaging?
The equipment you need will depend on the type of imaging you are performing.
- For nuclear imaging: a SPECT or PET machine, preferably coupled with a CT or MRI to localize the organs.
- For imaging luciferase or iRFP: an optical imager equipped with a cooled CCD camera.
- For imaging fluorescent proteins: an intravital fluorescent microscope.
- For imaging tyrosinase: a photoacoustic imager.
