Scalable SPECT for Drug Discovery and Development
MollyQ family was designed from the ground-up
to be the easiest to use, most cost effective
solution to the time-to-market problem faced by the
drug development industry. MollyQ’s are
small, robust and easy to operate. Targeted
applications include the study of biological function
and disease progression, the mapping of drug
distribution and kinetics, and the evaluation of drug
therapy – all on living (even
without harm. Unlike other forms of molecular
imaging such as scintillation counting of tissue
biopsies, autoradiography, or fluorescence, the
same animal can be used repeatedly enabling
follow-up of individual animals rather than
periodic sacrifice of populations.
MollyQ family implements SPECT (Single Photon
Emission Computed Tomography) using a radically
different approach which, unlike all other animal SPECT
systems, performs 3D radiological imaging without the
use of pinholes, rotation, or gamma cameras.

scanning microscope technology is inherently
simpler, smaller, and more robust, allowing us to
produce the MollyQ at a fraction of the
cost of our competitors’ systems while
providing similar or better performance.
MollyQ family consists of three systems, each
designed to image a particular size class of animals.
There a two desktop systems, the MollyQ-30 and the
MollyQ-50 and a
floor standing system, the MollyQ-150.
The MollyQ-30 is designed specifically for
mice. The MollyQ-50 accommodates larger
rodents and small primates such as marmoset
monkeys. The MollyQ-150 is large enough to
image animals such as dogs and large primates.
There is no other SPECT system that has this
scalability feature. All members of the
MollyQ family share common electronics and
data processing software, adding to
MollyQ’s cost effectiveness.
