Woburn, Massachusetts – August 4, 2010- CRi will announce and demonstrate a new Maestro™ system for in vivo kinetic imaging at a Workshop in Kyoto at the World Molecular Imaging Congress. Leading researchers will discuss how they use their CRi Maestro™ In-Vivo Imaging Systems to investigate target identification, tumor tracking, antibody labeling and kinetic modeling. Discussions will also include helpful tips and tricks and updates regarding CRi’s latest system developments, including the availability of the new Maestro system with included DyCE™ (Dynamic Contrast Enhancement) technology that generates time-based images and movies of fluorescent reagents and labeled antibodies, providing quantitative data on the temporal biodistribution of fluorescent markers at much earlier time points than is possible using conventional imaging methods, and enabling better discrimination between bound and unbound antibodies.
Featured speakers at the workshop include:
- Hisataka Kobayashi, Staff Scientist, NIH Molecular Imaging Program
- Yasuteru Urano, University of Tokyo
- Zhuang Liu, Soochow University
- James R. Mansfield, Director, Multispectral Imaging Systems, CRi
- Tuesday, September 7, 2010 (Day before the WMIC conference begins)
- 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm
- Room K, International Conference Center, Kyoto, Japan
Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be provided and seating is limited.
