Remora fish perfused with BriteVu

Remora fish (Remora sp) perfused with BriteVu.  The cardiovascular system of most fish is poorly studied.  BriteVu perfusions offer an opportunity for researchers to study fish structures on a whole new level.  BriteVu contrast agent has shown tremendous versatility and can be used under numerous conditions such as when perfusing new species.  To date, BriteVu has been used to perfuse numerous fish species.  A protocol using BriteVu and BriteVu Enhancer was developed to perform whole fish perfusions in effort to study the vasculature down to the capillaries.

The CT was taken with the Epica Vimago system at 200µm.  Individual organs can be removed for more detailed CT scanning, histology, etc.  This was a contract study performed in conjunction with Scarlet Imaging.  The composite image shows various layers of vasculature with the tail and pectoral fine showing skin only.
