DevelopmentalStudying mouse and rat embryos has never been easier
In Vivo Developmental and Pregnancy Research at any Gestational Time Point
From detecting pregnancy to measuring fetal and placental oxygenation and blood flow; the Vevo can do it all!
Vevo micro-ultrasound imaging platforms are ideally suited for developmental and pregnancy research in small animals. The size, structural details and function of the placenta and developing embryo can all be measured over multiple gestational time-points without having to sacrifice your animal.
Repeatable for longitudinal studies over gestation, rapid, and robust and with resolution down to 30 μm, studying mouse and rat embryos has never been easier.
- 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
- Image-guided embryo injection
