DEXA InAlyzer, Basic Model

The InAlyzer DEXA scan can analyze bone mineral density (BMD) and body composition (BMC, FAT, LEAN) of live lab animals in units of 0.001gm with simple anesthesia and without dissection. Serial assessment is possible for each live lab animal, saving animals and cost. Radiation exposure of researchers is blocked with internal protection, making the InAlyzer safe, effective, and accurate for use in the preclinical research phase.

  • Save time, cost, and animals
  • Automated, accurate, and precise measurement
  • High resolution images


Longitudinal studies

Data may be gathered for the same subjects repeatedly over a study period with minimal harm to the animal subjects, using simple anesthesia and no dissection.

High resolution images

The InAlyzer provides high-resolution images of 5.0 lp/mm, enabling structural analysis as well as providing various images, such as bone and body composition images, for easy analysis.

Compact size & safety

The InAlyzer is a compact desktop instrument. Internal lead shielding effectively protects researchers from radiation exposure, making the instrument safe for extended use.

Easy documentation

Reports are easy to generate because objective data and images can be stored in external file formats, such as Excel and Tiffs.

Monitoring camera

The built-in, real-time camera allows you to observe movement of the animal in the scanning area.

Access point for anesthesia

Anesthesia is used in many animal studies to immobilize animals while scanning or imaging. The InAlyzer provides an access point to allow continuous anesthetic gas flow and ensure complete animal immobility during imaging.

Selectable scan time

The InAlyzer can measure in three modes: Quick (1 min), Optimum (3min), and Accuracy (5min), according to the level of accuracy required.

Comparison to Lunar PIXImus

The DEXA InAlyzer offers a well-tested technology for the measurement of bone mineral density and body composition in laboratory animals. The InAlyzer DEXA systems are as much as five times faster than the PIXImus, and the InAlyzer provides greater precision. A key InAlyzer benefit is the option to handle lab animals as large as 3000 grams, while the PIXImus is limited to 50 grams.
