The Molecular Imaging Center (MIC) provides state-of-the-art bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging for Washington University and the research community. The MIC provides a team of researchers and qualified technical staff members to support the conduction of imaging studies.
Optical imaging uses light to interrogate cellular and molecular function in the living body. A variety of preclinical optical imaging systems is available:
Bioluminescence imaging (BLI)
Fluorescence imaging for intensity and lifetime values
- Fluorescence Tomography
- Near- Infrared Imaging
- Time-Domain Diffuse Optical Imager
- Multispectral optoacoustic Tomography
