True trimodal preclinical PET SPECT CT system

Albira Si is more powerful, more flexible and easier to use than ever, redefining what you can expect and supporting your research to reach new levels.

Albira Si is more powerful, more flexible and easier to use than ever, redefining what you can expect and supporting your research to reach new levels.

The Albira Si was the first commercial SiPM-based PET, offering Full Field-of-View Accuracy (FFA), in imaging and quantification.

Reinforced by high performance, seamlessly integrated SPECT and CT, the Albira Si is set the new standard in expectations from molecular imaging technology.

Truly multimodal, highly flexible

  • Seamless integration of PET, SPECT and CT in a fully shielded, compact footprint
  • Homogeneous resolution and quantitative accuracy in single or multiple simultaneous animal studies
  • Accurate dual cardiac/pulmonary PET and SPECT gated imaging
  • Full range of animal beds and monitoring accessories for optimum productivity
  • Accurate animal positioning with the motorized animal handling system enables automatic co-registration of images

Professor John Prior and colleagues at the Lausanne University Hospital use the Albira PET/SPECT/CT in their research

Full Field Accuracy (FFA)

FFA offers real, homogeneous sub-millimetric volumetric PET resolution in all three axes in the whole field of view, with superior precision in quantification based on: Exclusive continuous crystal detectors with Si PM technology and true depth of interaction 3D precision equivalent to 10+ layer pixelated crystal detectors.
