New Vascupaint™ Silicone Injection Compounds

New Vascupaint™ silicone injection compounds are now available for order. 

Vascupaint™ allows scientist to get better images and replace lead based Microfil (Flow-Tech, Carver, Massachussetts) for their post-mortem angiography studies with microscopy and microCT imaging.  

Compared to lead based silicone injection compounds, Vascupaint™ is easier to perfuse  and allow for a better perfusion of microvasculature without the widely reported problems of viscosity encountered with microfil.

Brain organs were harvested following perfusion with MediLumine’s Vascupaint™ silicone injection compound containing X-ray attenuating bismuth pigments.
