Measuring device for oncological tumor research

Introducing the Peira TM900: the smart new handheld imaging device which measures subcutaneous tumors in immuno-deficient mice. The Peira TM900 is a fast, reliable and powerful solution for the measurement of tumors. And it's a real game-changer for oncological animal research.

tm900The Peira TM900's innovative design makes it:

  • Smart
    The handheld imaging device is light and captures tumor images in stereovision.
  • Flexible
    It can adapt to measure tumors of different sizes.
  • Easy-to-use
    The panel pc can be operated via touch screen and with latex gloves, which is very practical for researchers.
  • Powerful
    The integrated software package allows researchers to automate not only tumor data collection but the whole animal research study.
  • Practical
    The touch screen and the whole set up can easily be cleaned.

The Peira TM900 guarantees high-throughput. It has the accuracy, speed and reliability you would expect of a fully automated measurement and tracking system. It has the convenience of real-time data processing and analysis. And thanks to its smart design, the Peira TM900 increases the productivity and efficiency of the measurement process.

“Caliper based tumor measurements can have issues with operator bias. Peira’s TM 900 contactless tumor volume measurement device is a faster and more accurate operator independent technology. The ability to electronically capture every raw image, together with a reference grid , coupled with easy transfer of raw data to standard data visualisation packages should offer major advantages over current methods.”
