Bruker has opened the Preclinical Imaging Center of Excellence for the Americas in Billerica, Mass., with advanced development, demonstration and support facilities for preclinical imaging instrumentation and multimodal platforms.
“I am really excited to see the establishment of a full-featured, preclinical imaging laboratory in the Boston area,” said Frederic Fahey, director of Nuclear Medicine Physics at Boston Children’s Hospital. “We look forward to the development of many new collaborations and innovations.”
The center aims to play a key role in promoting the successful application of complementary imaging information in preclinical research in oncology, cardiology, inflammation, musculoskeletal imaging and the neurosciences. Multiple modalities such as optical imaging, x-ray, PET and MRI enable researchers to acquire complementary image information such as morphology and function for use in translational research and medical science.
