Siemens and Gamma Medica ink pact

Siemens Medical Solutions and gamma camera developer Gamma Medica of Northridge, CA, have signed an agreement giving Siemens exclusive U.S. marketing rights for Gamma Medica’s molecular imaging product, X-SPECT. The Malvern, PA-based vendor plans to market the imaging system to hospitals, universities, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

The product is a second-generation dual-modality system in Gamma Medica’s MicroSPECT product line, designed for pre-clinical, small animal imaging. The X-SPECT system combines SPECT with CT, and is similar to clinical systems, but on a smaller scale and with dedicated features suited to the in vivo imaging of mice and other small animals in a laboratory setting. The systems are primarily used in the study of disease processes and for drug development.
