Description

CONTEXT

The development of increasingly important animal models mimicking human diseases such as neurodegenerative diseases or tumor, has opened new opportunities in research in fields as diverse as toxicology, pharmacology, or even molecular biology.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

The invention is an implantable device in the brain of a particular animal for the detection of radiation emitted by spontaneous disintegration of a radioisotope, wherein an implantable sensor-shaped needle, made in material semi driver and a basic set of detectors. The device also includes a set of amplifier circuits, formatting, counting and transmission distance wireless, which are related to elementary and detectors which are intended to be worn by the animal, that being awake and freedom of movement.

BENEFITS

Using a sensor material semi driver implanted inside the body of the animal allows a direct conversion of energy radiation resulting from the disintegration of a measurable electrical current in situ.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

The device according to the invention is intended in particular for the detection of radiation β+ ,β- ou α to analyze the distribution and setting a radiotraceur in tissues with a temporal resolution of the order of second.
