OsteoSense 800 Fluorescent Imaging Agent

Image and quantify osteoporosis, arthritis, cancer metastases, and other bone diseases, as well as normal bone growth and resorption, in vivo with OsteoSense® Fluorescent Imaging probes. As opposed to other imaging modalities such as CT or x-ray which raise the risk of harmful irradiation to the subject, in vivo fluorescence imaging offers no radiation exposure concerns, and when performed with optimized hydroxyapatite-targeted probes such as OsteoSense, can image and quantify bone growth and elucidate the biology of bone remodeling.

OsteoSense is available in 3 wavelengths: 680, 750, and 800.

For laboratory use only. This product is intended for animal research only and not for use in humans.

OsteoSense NIR fluorescent bisphosphonate imaging agents are designed to bind with high affinity to hydroxyapatite (HA) both in vivo and in vitro. Since HA is known to bind pyrophosphonates and phosphonates as well as synthetic bisphosphonates with high affinity, OsteoSense agents offer a safe and easy means to assess the subtle bone mineral changes that occur in bone growth, bone loss, and in diseases that damage bone, using subtherapeutic doses for imaging.

OsteoSense 800 is excited by 780 ± 10 mn excitation light and emits at 805 ± 10 mn. Including OsteoSense 800 in careful experimental design allows for multiplexing with other channels and/or imaging times, and so can be paired with other probes to achieve maximum efficiency and flexibility in imaging.

White Paper

The Role of In Vivo Imaging in Drug Discovery and Development

The primary goal of preclinical imaging is to improve the odds of clinical success and reduce drug discovery and development time and costs. Advances in non-invasive in vivo imaging techniques have raised the use of animal models in drug discovery and development to a new level by enabling quick and efficient drug screening and evaluation. Read this White Paper to learn how preclinical in vivo imaging helps to ensure that smart choices are made by providing Go/No-Go decisions and de-risking drug candidates early on, significantly reducing time to the clinic and lowering costs all while maximizing biological understanding.
