IMT is always looking for new and inventive ways to assist in the development of innovative research. Our microspheres dyeing techniques along with our general microsphere expertise can be used for the development of new products for research. Our prices are tailored for smaller studies, but have the facilities to scale up if necessary.
Here are some potential product ideas:
Competitor microspheres Analysis - IMT can provide analysis of Triton Technology and Molecular Probes Microspheres. We will include a validation of the technique if we have not previously analyzed the microspheres from our competitors.
Micro-perfusion Studies - 1 to 2 micron microspheres for micro perfusion studies in skin, cancer and nasal spray studies. Microspheres would be of different fluorescent colors for multiple time point analysis of small particle perfusion. Tissue sample could then be collected and submitted to IMT of analysis.
All Sizes, all dyes (Fluorescent and Colored) of polystyrene Microspheres - With our dying technology IMT can provide small or large quantities of any size of microsphere using any organic soluble dye. Our technology provides ultra uniform color for both visual and flow cytometer analysis with great accuracy.
Quality Control Microspheres (Fluorescent and Colored) - All of our microspheres, custom or not, can be consistently reproduced for the establishment of quality control of product over time. IMT uses 11 microspheres for the quality control of it's flow cytometers for measuring regional blood flow.
Magnetic Microspheres - Large 17um paramagnetic microspheres of x-ray analysis in blood flow studies.
