Specifically designed for pre-clinical researchers, Albira combines PET, SPECT and CT imaging in a unique and extremely powerful way. Its highly compact, modular design gives you the freedom to purchase what you need now, and upgrade as your research requirements change.
Revolutionary PET detection technology
Unlike conventional systems, Albira PET technology uses single, continuous crystals without dead zones. The Albira system uses these crystals, along with their associated position sensitive photo-multiplier tubes (PSPMT) and PET electronics, to measure the depth of interaction by the shape of the detected light.
This corrects for parallax error — without sacrificing sensitivity. By contrast, the pixelated crystal detectors used in other PET systems must be packed more densely in larger detector areas in order to reduce parallax error. Only Albira’s revolutionary PET technology breaks free from this limitation.
Your system, your way
Albira can be purchased in seven configurations to suit your needs, and you can easily upgrade from a standalone system to bimodal and trimodal configurations as your research needs change over time. Your capabilities expand, but the size of your system does not.
Beneath its streamlined, shielded shell, the true genius of Albira's modular construction and flexibility is immediately clear. It has everything you need -- from exceptional performance to multiple upgrade paths to smooth, convenient workflow--all neatly packaged in a 2.2 m x 1.6 m foot print. It will fit in virtually any lab.
Whether you are looking to develop new predictive imaging biomarkers, accelerate preclinical validation of small or large molecules, select drug candidates for clinical translation, or gain quantitative understanding of biological processes, Albira’s revolutionary technology unlocks the full potential of your research.
