Bioscan is a developer of advanced instrumentation for the detection, synthesis and imaging of radiolabeled compounds used in life science research, molecular imaging, pharmaceutical development and nuclear medicine. It was founded in 1980 by Seth Shulman as a supplier of innovative products for radioisotope detection and analysis in life science, pharmaceutical and nuclear medicine research applications. Its mission is to facilitate early disease diagnosis and accelerate drug discovery by providing innovative technologies for bio-tracer chemistry and preclinical imaging.

Bioscan's patented technology improves screening of drug pipeline candidates over classic in vitro methods by providing more relevant biological data, more consistency, as well as reduced cost and complexity. This unique imaging acuity also makes it possible to translate research results from mouse models of human diseases to human clinical trials - driving increased speed to market for drugs. It provides SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) and PET (Positron Emission Tomography) imaging systems for preclinical applications. Its tools enable researchers, pharmaceutical and biotech organizations to improve their drug development research using in vivo animal models. br>
