VisualSonics gains exclusive, global rights to distribute Mauna Kea's high-res in vivo imager

APRIL 1, 2009--Under a new, exclusive distribution agreement, VisualSonics (Toronto, Ont., Canada) will market and sell Mauna Kea Technologies' (Paris, France) high-resolution in vivo imagingsystem to pre-clinical researchers worldwide. The system, Cellvizio LAB, promises a new way to understand physiological phenomena at the cellular and sub-cellular levels in situ in animal subjects. It claims to enable, for the first time, the ability to easily capture, analyze and compare smooth-motion video sequences of a wide array of cellular level characteristics and events, in real-time, without disturbing the cells' natural environment.
