Intelligent markers

Customizing visibility.

We offer our clients dedicated, customized markers for clinical applications. Some examples:

  • For experimental research into bone regeneration we have created a silica-covered SPIO-Gold aggregate,  This contrast agent was dried and added to Ca-phosphate bone cement (Ventura et al, 2012). A small (2 %, w/v) mix caused optimal visibility of bone in CT and MRI.
  • For navigation of instruments in magnetic particle imaging, we have embedded existing contrast agent (ResoVist®) into a specific coating and put this on commercially available devices. This work has been conducted with UKSH in Lübeck (Germany).
