BriteVu proved to be an practical and versatile choice for a contrast agent. It was used in a series of studies involving perfusions as part of an effort to characterize the effect of a commercial drug candidate on vascular development. Ease of preparation and cost efficiency make it an excellent option for exploratory research.

BriteVu has been a tremendous tool to visualize and measure cardiorespiratory vascularization. The solution was simple to prepare and Dr. Echols was extremely supportive and helpful in helping design a protocol for my needs. The CT images showed outstanding detail and were easy to segment and analyze with existing software. Overall BriteVu is a fantastic product and the company provides exceptional service.

BriteVu is the most effective and manageable contrast media agent I have ever used.  In my research it was able to produce the fully perfused cerebrovasculature while consistently showing the microvasculature.

We have tried for years to successfully introduce contrast into the microvasculature of various mouse organs, but were unsuccessful until trying BriteVu.  This is not only due to the product itself, but to Scott’s quick and thorough support when it comes to labeling protocols.

We have had a great experience working with Scarlet Imaging and using BriteVu as a perfusion agent. I was able to perfuse small capillaries in the jaw bones of rats for my master thesis without having any previous experience with contrast blood vessel perfusion. In addition, the customer service is impeccable: Dr. Echols’ expertise in vessel perfusion was instrumental in developing a predictable perfusion protocol. I highly recommend BriteVu and Scarlet Imaging.

Brite Vu provides remarkable vascular contrast in X-ray images, particularly across small-vessel lumina. It’s an easy-to-use visualization tool with predictably clear results.

Our experience using BriteVu for imaging human cadaveric vasculature of the arm has been very positive. Preparing and infusing the BriteVu was a simple process. We found that BriteVu displayed an amazing ability to penetrate into the capillary beds and we produced whole-arm images clearer than any I have ever seen with any contrast medium previously employed.

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.

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.

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,...

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.
