BioPAL has developed Gado CELLTrack™ to aid researchers locate, track and quantify implanted cells in in vivo systems using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology. Gado CELLTrack is a 50 nm gadolinium colloid. As shown in the figure below, this reagent provides a strong T1 brightening signal that is at minimum comparable to the same molar concentration as Gd-DTPA. In addition, BioPAL can provide this reagent containing a small amount of other isotopes to allow for quantification via neutron activation.
FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY.
NOT FOR USE IN DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES.
Stem cell labeling imaging and tracking via MRI and is a better alternative to GadofluorineM. Cell tracking agent for T1 MRI imaging. A gadolinium nanoparticle for cell labeling and MRI tracking.
Two ml of Gado CELLTrack™ is packaged in a 2 ml sealed serum bottles. The product is a 50nm gadolinium colloid (10 mg Gd/ml) having a negative surface. BioPAL also provides poly-L-Lysine (1 ml, 10 gm/ml) packaged in a 2 ml sealed serum bottle.
The procedure for labeling poly-L-Lysine onto Gado CELLTrack™ is comparable to the procedure described for Molday ION (-) (CL-30Q02-6), but may require an initial range finding study for optimal labeling for each cell tpye. This procedure is provided as a PDF download above.
Gado CellTrack is a cell labeling product to label cells and then track cells and image cells using MRI imaging. Primary cells, T-cells, stems cells and platelets can be labeled, imaged and tracked using T1 MRI imaging.
