OsteoSys iNSiGHT DXA cabinet system

Sunday, 01 May, 2022 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd


The iNSiGHT is a fully shielded DXA (DEXA, dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) cabinet system, designed by OsteoSys specifically for use on preclinical small animal models such as mice and rats. The DXA technology provides quantification of body composition, such as bone mineral density (BMD), bone mineral content (BMC), bone/tissue area, fat % and fat(g), lean(g) at each ROI and total weight by fast scan.

The system provides high-resolution images (X-ray DR image, bone-enhanced image, body composition image) with multiple ROIs with a flat panel detector, said to enable accuracy and precision. It provides researchers with a state-of-the-art tool to study body composition non-invasively, with low-dose radiation, and is suitable for longitudinal studies on the same animals. Due to its fast scan time of 25 s, a simple treatment with anesthesia is all that is required with no sacrifice of animal.

iNSiGHT presents a DXA image with high resolution of 100 μm. DR image and colour mapping for lean and fat distribution is optimised for visual analysis and assessment. As a pivotal tool enabling a genuine longitudinal study, it is equipped with multiple ROI settings and history analysis.

A transparent window and wide imaging area of 16.5 x 25.5 cm provide a secure measuring environment and process for in vivo imaging and DXA analysis. A magnification shelf supports high-end imaging analysis up to 4x geometric magnification.
