Application Note: Diet Considerations for In Vivo Animal Imaging Investigations
17 June 2011
Diet considerations in 'in vivo' animal imaging are investigated in this application note from LI-COR. Near-infrared (NIR) optical imaging is a useful tool for in vivo study of animal samples, and diet prior to NIR has been shown to affect the quality of the result. A variety of diets are discussed with some recommendations as to various diets to avoid for optimum in vivo imaging outcome.
