Helping researchers achieve better answers that change the world

BriteVu, Scarlet Imaging’s first product, is an unparalleled research contrast agent. BriteVu is easy to use, has high radiodensity and penetrates to the capillary level. Using radiographs or CT, researchers can study a subject’s vascular system with incredible detail.

BriteVu can also be used to study the respiratory system, body cavities and other non-vascular systems of conceivably any animal.

Testimonials

"...one of the most exciting and innovative things to happen to the field of anatomy in a long time

"BriteVu is one of the most exciting and innovative things to happen to the field of anatomy in a long time. Everything about BriteVu is an upgrade from the current products out there for vascular imaging, and the staff at Scarlet Imaging are both wonderful to work with and willing bend over backwards to help facilitate the research needs of their clients."

"...opened new doors for us to explore uncharted territories of 3D vasculature imaging

"BriteVu opened new doors for us to explore uncharted territories of 3D vasculature imaging, offering superior abilities to reach smaller vessels compared to other more expensive products. The team who developed BriteVu offer superb customer service, and are always willing to connect our group with different labs from around the world, which enriched our studies beyond what we anticipated from using a contrast agent."

"...solution was easy to prepare and perfuse into the vasculature

"Our research group used BriteVu to visualize cerebral blood vessels in rats down to the 50 micron level for use in developing a more complete finite element model of the brain.  The BriteVu solution was easy to prepare and perfuse into the vasculature, taking about 30 minutes start to finish to get the animal ready to scan.  CT revealed beautiful casting of vascular spaces whose high contrast images were easily segmented into a 3D geometry.  Scarlet Imaging's president, Dr. Scott Echols, was incredibly helpful and responsive in helping us develop our perfusion and imaging technique and developing it into our computational model."

"...best contrast agent I have ever used

"BriteVu is the best contrast agent I have ever used.   It is easy to prepare, reliable, and yields exceptional results.  Vasculature readily fills under physiological infusion pressures to become highly radio-opaque.  It has been a pleasure to work with the knowledgeable and friendly personnel of Scarlet Imaging.  I highly recommend both product and company."
