InAlyzer DEXA System

Fast, efficient DEXA system for small animal research

DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorption) body composition analyser for laboratory animals

  • Medikors InAlyzer - Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry body composition analyser

    Key Features

    • Compact benchtop design for efficient use of imaging laboratory
    • Fast scans from <30 sec for high throughput and low animal dosage
    • Fan-beam X-ray technology identical to that used in clinical system for high accuracy and reproducibility
    • Up to five regions of interest in analysis for detailed analysis of anatomical regions
    • Low X-ray dosage perfect for longtitudinal studies
    • Report driven output for seamless integration into research reports

Medikors Inc developed InAlyzer, a diagnostic X-ray imaging system, which uses DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorption) to analyze Bone Mineral Density and Body Composition (BMC, FAT, LEAN) of live laboratory animals with precision of 0.001g. The InAlyzer is fast (scan times from <30sec), accurate and reproducible due to the fan-beam X-ray technology. It is also fully shielded for complete safety for the researcher.

The InAlyzer will support animal models from mice through to small canines with efficient throughput. To add to the capabilities, up to five regions of interest can be set to focus results on areas like the spine or a femur.

Benefits of Using the InAlyzer DEXA Body Composition Analyser

  • Get total scan results in under 5 minutes
  • Scan the same animal multiple times over extended time periods to monitor real changes
  • Minimise the number of animals required for each study
  • Eliminates the need for animal sacrifice and saves time
  • Very cost-effective
  • Scans whole animal or region of interest
  • Extremely safe for operators with a fully shielded enclosure and safety interlocks to prevent accidental X-ray exposure
