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