imaging and advanced
The Experimental Neurology Unit (ENU) combines different expertise and equipment in a single research group at the highest preclinical level, with interests in neurological, neuroimmunological and oncological fields.
The preclinical diagnostic imaging unit consists of an interdisciplinary research group with expertise and interests in translational diagnostics and in vivo imaging dedicated to the development of new therapeutic strategies.
Area managers: Guido Cavalletti - Rosa Maria Moresco
Activities___________ ENU Unit
The efficacy testing of mesenchymal stem cells as a therapeutic option in the treatment of neurological disease
Activities ___________ Diagnostic imaging Unit
The ENU area has high quality equipment for structural and functional analysis of biological mechanisms of medical relevance. The GLP-ready laboratories are organized in such a way that they can quickly access the necessary certifications for the development process of products for human use.
The diagnostic imaging laboratory has pre-clinical in vivo imaging instrumentation:
- a TAC system (Bruker)
- fluorescence imaging (FMT-Perkin Elmer)
The group has access to radiochemistry laboratories and equipment for in vivo molecular imaging, in vivo behavioral studies and histological evaluations equipped with the following instrumentation:
- Low Voltage Electron Microscope, delong LVEM25 (LVEM-TEM)
- Noldus catwalk XT system XT
- Holographic microscope CX-A (Nanolive)
- SIMOA ultra-sensitive ELISA digital system, Quanterix SR-X
- Autostainer 360-S2D AHSI
- Scanning system, Axioscan 7 Zeiss
