Body Composition Analyzers for Live Small Animals (Rats, Mice) and Organs

EchoMRI™ Body Composition Analyzer for Live Rats, Mice, Organs  

The EchoMRI™-500, 700, 900, and 1100 Analyzers deliver precise body composition measurements of fat, lean, free water, and total water masses in live animals weighing up to 500, 700, 900 and 1100 grams respectively.

Scanning takes 0.5 – 3.2 minutes, depending on the precision options.

If additional hardware inserts are purchased, composition of smaller animals up to 100 g and of still smaller samples of animal organs or tissues weighing up to 7g can be measured with enhanced precision.

The live animals need no anesthesia and no special preparation before measurement.

EchoMRI™ Analyzers are exceedingly easy to operate. A training period of one hour is sufficient for individuals without prior knowledge.

Numeric results are stored and can be viewed again later at any time, as well as extracted either into Excel and ASCII files or into Access database.

The EchoMRI™-500, 700, 900 and 1100 Analyzers are stand-alone units, on 4 casters for easy relocation. They use standard power sources, and are completely shielded and safe to run.
