Description

Transport, image specimens while maintaining biosafety level 3 quarantine

Shea Lundeby

Inventor: Shea Lundeby

 
The bio-imaging containment unit is a three-in-one isolation, transportation and imaging device. This new invention permits medical imaging of multiple specimens in biosafety level 3 (BSL3) quarantine. Additional features allow for anesthesia delivery and real-time specimen monitoring.
 
The bio-imaging containment unit includes a sealed, medical-grade filtration system entirely comprised of non-ferrous materials. The unit is portable, specifically designed to fit medical imaging systems, and scalable to hold living specimens over a wide range of sizes. The device has multiple, additional features including anesthesia delivery, real-time specimen monitoring via communication lines, and a self-contained uninterruptable power supply.
 
By facilitating medical imaging, such as an MRI, of living specimens in isolation, this technology will accelerate innovative research and enable world-class imaging facilities to perform immediate data collection on outside specimens. This unit can also be used to safely transport and image immunocompromised specimens.
