Successful Use in Nephrology Research
MediBeacon technology is used by leading medical schools, academic centers, research institutes, contract research organizations and pharmaceutical companies worldwide to enhance preclinical assessment of kidney therapeutics, evaluate nephrotoxicity, and gain fundamental understanding of kidney function in animals. Research using the MediBeacon preclinical product has been featured at scientific meetings worldwide. There are over 150 peer reviewed publications and conference abstracts in which this transdermal mGFR technique has been used.
Preclinical Device – Technical Specifications
The instrument contains light emitting diodes which excite the fluorescent tracer agent and a photodiode that collects the light emission.
After amplification and digitization, the data sets are subsequently stored in the internal memory of the device. The data is transferred to a PC or Mac via USB connection. A basic software package is provided with the device. An advanced evaluation software product (Preclinical Data Studio) is sold separately.
