ExiTron nano 12000 is an innovative nanoparticulate agent optimized for high-resolution CT angiography. Its remarkably high contrast and long blood half-life enable clear visualization of fine vascular structures including microvessels.

Profit from the unique nanoparticulate agent for high-resolution CT angiography:

  • Highlight vascular structures and regions of increased vascular permeability
  • Benefit from the strong and long-lasting blood vessel contrast allowing high-resolution CT studies including functional cardiac imaging
  • The low injection volume and high biological tolerability allows studies even in weak animals
  • ExiTron nano 12000 is Viscover's leading agent for high-resolution CT angiography

Apply ExiTron nano 12000 to:

  • Effectively visualize vascular structures down to the microvessel level
  • Detect areas of increased vascular permeability, e.g. certain types of tumors
  • Investigate functional cardiac parameters
  • Benefit from the liver imaging capability analogous to ExiTron nano 6000
