Newcastle Preclinical In Vivo Imagining (PIVI) is a multidisciplinary research centre providing equipment for Magnetic Resonance, Positron Emission Tomography and Fluorescence/Bioluminescence imaging.
The objective of PIVI is to provide expertise, training and cutting edge in vivo imaging modalities to conduct scientific research at molecular and cellular level. Research of this kind allows us to gain a better understanding of biological processes in comparative animal models.
Our team of experts provides a range of services and training from experimental design and data acquisition to data analysis. We offer these services internally, to other academic institutions and to industry.
An added benefit of PIVI is that it resides in the Comparative Biology Centre, allowing researchers to perform longitudinal studies via single or multiple modalities.
