FeraSpin R nanoparticles form the basis of all size-selected FeraSpin products and therefore contain all particles comprising the FeraSpin Series. FeraSpin R is rapidly taken up by liver and spleen macrophages.

Viscover's proven superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticle (SPIO) agent:

  • Consists of nanoparticles from 10 - 90 nanometers
  • Is rapidly taken up by macrophages in the liver and spleen
  • Delivers optimal T2/T2* contrast
  • FeraSpin R is Viscover's leading MRI agent for liver and spleen imaging

Apply FeraSpin R SPIO nanoparticles:

  • To effectively visualize spleen, liver and liver tumor morphology in excellent detail
  • To study nanoparticle physiology with ease
  • And rely on a substance well-proven in clinical practice

FeraSpin R MRI of the liver
FeraSpin R accumulated in mouse liver Kupffer cells leading to T2* hypointensity of healthy liver tissue and rendering the tumor white and highly visible.
