PhotoSound Technologies, Inc. has been developing and commercializing devices and electronic components for biomedical imaging utilizing optics and photoacoustics. They develop imaging platforms for in vivo preclinical research and drug discovery utilizing co-registered photoacoustic and fluorescent 3D images acquired simultaneously.

The TriTom platform is based on Photoacoustic Fluorescence Tomography (PAFT) technology that provides unparalleled capabilities for whole-body imaging and in vivo characterization of small animal models. Complimentary 3D imaging modalities are integrated into a single powerful instrument by enabling co-registered Photoacoustic Tomography and Fluorescence Molecular Tomography. Combining high-resolution photoacoustic imaging with high contrast fluorescence optical tomography allows deep quantitative tissue imaging, superior molecular sensitivity, and 3D localization of anatomical, functional, and molecular data.

The TriTom imaging system has a broad spectrum of preclinical research applications ranging from cancer, toxicology, developmental biology to tissue engineering and regeneration.

“We are excited to introduce the photoacoustic technology to the research community. The platform provides high-resolution anatomical registration of optical biomarkers while maintaining high molecular sensitivity, allowing for a broad range of applications and research,” says Blair Poetschke, President of Scintica Instrumentation.

“Together with Scintica we are proud to present to the biomedical research community our flagship imaging technology TriTom, which was developed to address critical customer needs in high-fidelity in vivo whole-body molecular imaging of preclinical small animal models,” says Sergey Ermilov, an inventor of TriTom technology and the CEO of PhotoSound.
