From An Unpaired Electron To An Image.
The Potential Of Electron Resonance Imaging -The Future Of Preclinical Studies.
Our experts will let you discover new possibilities in preclinical imaging. You will see in-vivo applications of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Imaging (EPRI). Find out in which areas you can use this technique.
Since EPR can be performed in 3D (EPRI) the imaging of oxygen, redox status, or even pH becomes possible. So far, EPR imaging was developed only in the academic domain. We would like to introduce a new solution for the preclinical application of EPRI called Electron-Resonance-Imaging (ERI). It allows researchers to use the potential of EPRI in their studies. The ERI solution opens new possibilities and gives endless ideas for its application in today’s preclinical studies.
To spread the news about ERI we prepared a cycle of webinars. During our lectures, we will familiarize you with ERI, and how it involved in the hands of our experts. We wish to share with you our passion for science and inspire you to discover new possibilities in preclinical imaging.

What is Electron Resonance Imaging (EPR)? Journey through research projects and publications. What has happened from 1944 until now?
During this presentation, you will learn about the history of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR), how the equipment developed through times and what obstacles must have been overcome to create a commercially used imager. You will hear about interesting research and projects carried by the world’s most famous scientists. See in which areas EPR was used and in which direction it is going right now.

Dr. Baranowski is interested in radio spectroscopy techniques especially EPR. He has experience with the construction of low-frequency imagers. He also developed new measurement techniques and image reconstruction SPI.
Trends in in-vivo EPR/ERI
The topics for our second webinar will cover major research avenues in contemporary EPR imaging of living animals and examples of applications. Which physiological parameters might be visualized and how relevant they are for biomedical studies.
Dr. Martyna Elas
Dr. Martyna Elas is specializing in preclinical imaging, especially in the field of anticancer therapies. She is an expert in oxygen mapping of tumours using electron paramagnetic resonance, vasculature imaging using ultrasound, computer tomography, and MRI. The radiobiology and mechanisms involved in metastasis lie also within the range of her studies. She is involved in many international collaborations, including the University of Chicago, Orlean University, Marie Curie Institute, and Geneva University. She is a Polish coordinator for the H2020 grant (UMCure2020) devoted to developing a cure for metastatic of uveal melanoma. Dr. Elas has been teaching biophysics in Poland and abroad (Orlean, Tbilisi) and was engaged in developing master and bachelor programs in biophysics.
ERI tomograph the solution that allows you to maximize the potential of EPR in your studies
Our third webinar will introduce our device- the ERI tomograph. We will show you how does it work, explain all the features and show examples of in-vivo applications. We will demonstrate how easily you can use it to measure the absolute value of oxygen level, pH, redox state and organic phosphorus. See for yourself about the research potential of ERI, and discover how our method can be complementary to the present ones. Reveal how combining the results may give you possibilities that you have never had before.

Dynamic 3D ERI measurements
Our last webinar will focus on the results and projects that were carried with our device. We will show in which fields you can use ERI and what information has been gathered during the imaging process. We would like to show you the dynamic imaging of the spin probe, redox dynamic as well as 4D tumour Oximetry.
