InAlyzer - World’s first 108-µm body composition analyzer

Use of high-resolution dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) for bone mineral density and body composition analysis

InAlyzer is a high-resolution dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) bone mineral density and body composition analyzer for research. DXA uses two X-rays of different types of energy to examine a target of interest. The high-energy X-rays have small attenuation when penetrating through the material while the low X-rays have large attenuation. Given such attenuation differences, the mass value of the target material can be obtained.

InAlyzer eliminates the need for destructive chemistry analysis in bone and tissue composition measurements. Using DXA technology, a researcher is able to make multiple measurements throughout the entire the life of a lab animal. InAlyzer is now widely adopted in the research of:

• Metabolic bone diseases (Osteoporosis)

• Metabolic disorders (Diabetes and obesity)

• Arthritis

• Musculoskeletal diseases

• Drug toxicology
