Accurate whole body or whole organ visualization of on- and off-target biodistribution, protein expression, and other biochemical processes is essential in preclinical research. However, current methods for analysis at large volume scales are limited by throughput or their ability to provide complete data.


3D Cryo-Fluorescence Tomography (CFT) addresses these gaps in current imaging workflows with high resolution, high sensitivity fluorescence and anatomical images. CFT has multiplexing capabilities, seamlessly integrates and extends in vivo imaging workflows, and complements microscopic analysis by providing improved sub-organ localization of drug products, proteins, and biomarkers. 


In this presentation, we will cover the fundamentals of CFT imaging via EMIT Imaging’s XerraTM platform and review key applications for this exciting technology, including:


  • Introduction to Cryo-Fluorescence Tomography (CFT)
  • Overview of capabilities of the EMIT Imaging Xerra system
  • Examples of CFT applications in drug discovery, oncology, gene therapy, and neurology
