MRI Vascular Imaging Contrast Agents

Technical Information

BioPAL offers several different MRI contrast reagents for pre-clinical imaging applications. Molday Ion™ is specifically designed for pre-clinical vascular imaging applications and blood flow studies and for tumor and vessel imaging.

Molday ION™ is a 30 nm iron oxide-based superparamagnetic (USPIO) T2 relaxation-darkening MRI contrast agent. Molday ION, an intravascular contrast agent, has a blood half-life of several hours and can be used in a wide range of cardiovascular and vascular research, as well as a perfusion marker for tumor imaging. This product is also available autoclaved!
