Product Description
The M3™ compact, high-performance, one-touch MRI system is the smallest of Aspect Imaging’s M-series and is intended for dedicated imaging of mice. The M3 enables to generate high-resolution 3D anatomical, functional and molecular images with a “bore” size optimized for mice. The M3’s small bore correlates to a smaller total size (footprint), lighter weight, and lower MRI machine cost. The system can be uniquely placed behind the bio-containment barrier for in vivo imaging. In addition to its comprehensive suite of applications for mouse phenotyping, Aspect Imaging’s LumiQuant™ package for generation of 3D tomographic quantification of luminescence and co-registration with compact MR is optimized for use on the M3 platform.
One instrument, multiple applications:
The M3 has all the capabilities to routinely and repeatedly quantify phenotypes in mouse models of disease, including:
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular
  • Contrast-based Molecular Imaging
  • Diabetes and Obesity
  • Embryology / Developmental Biology
  • Nephrology
  • Neurobiology
  • Stem Cell / Cell Tracking
3D Whole Body Morphological Imaging
The M3 compact, high-performance MRI system enables high-resolution 3D whole body morphological imaging of mouse models of disease. Biologists and researchers without prior MR or imaging experience can now leverage the gold standard modality – MRI – for morphological imaging. The M3 is an in vivo imaging platform that is:
  • Easy to learn
  • Effortless to operate
  • Fast to generate reproducible, quantitative results of phenotypes and therapeutic efficacy.
The M3, like the whole family of M-series magnets, provides a high-performance in vivo MRI system that is virtually maintenance free. The system requires:
  • No cryogens
  • No auxiliary power**
  • No compressors or plumbing that require servicing
**The M3 system only requires 1x 15 Amp outlet with 30 Amp receptacle.
The M3, like all compact MRI systems from Aspect Imaging, can be placed in most locations in a facility and doesn’t require an infrastructure typically needed with superconducting MRI system or cryogen-free MRI systems. The system therefore does not require any of the following:
  • No shielding
  • No auxiliary power supplies or services
  • No plumbing, pumps or compressors
The M3 can therefore be placed:
  • In a small animal core imaging facility
  • Right next to other modalities like PET, CT or optical
  • In a working lab
  • Behind the barrier
