From Detecting Pregnancy to Measuring Fetal and Placental Oxygenation and Blood Flow
Vevo ultra-high frequency imaging platforms provide superior resolution ideally suited for developmental and pregnancy research in small animals.
The size, structural details and function of the placenta and developing embryo can be measured over multiple gestational time-points without having to sacrifice your animal.
With the Vevo imaging systems you can:
- Detect and date pregnancy with confidence
- Measure size, blood flow and oxygen saturation in the placenta
- Visualize and measure umbilical blood flow
- Visualize and study fetal organ development
- Measure developing heart contractility and blood vessel flow
- Perform precise image-guided embryo injections
Ideal for research on:
- Developmental toxicity and drug trials
- Fetal programming
- Pregnancy research and pregnancy complications
