Kodak Launches New Imaging Agent Product Line for Research Applications

NEW HAVEN, CT | Posted on February 13th, 2007

Once attached to a molecule and injected into an organism, the X-SIGHT imaging agents will travel to the target ( such as a tumor or plaque ) and illuminate the region of interest when excited by the appropriate wavelength of fluorescent light. X-SIGHT imaging agents are biocompatible and non-cytotoxic, making them safe and translatable for research studies in areas such as oncology, cardiology, diabetes, and inflammation, to name a few. They deliver not only superior brightness, but also enhanced photostability allowing more time for image capture.

This new product line leverages Kodak's 50 years of dye chemistry and nanotechnology expertise, merging world-class dyes with a state-of-the-art nanoparticle construct. X-SIGHT imaging agents are uniquely designed to offer biocompatibility along with superior brightness, providing researchers an incredibly bright and robust platform for safely locating their target of interest in vivo.

Together with Kodak's In-Vivo Imaging Systems, the X-SIGHT Imaging Agent line further expands the breadth of leading-edge solutions offered from Kodak to the research community.

"The launch of X-SIGHT Imaging Agents, is a significant milestone toward offering our customers a complete solution of systems and agents to advance their research," commented Shahram Hejazi, PhD, General Manager of Kodak's Molecular Imaging Systems division. "This introduction strengthens our leadership in the molecular imaging arena as we move forward to bridge the gap between preclinical and clinical applications."

X-SIGHT imaging agents can be readily conjugated to a wide range of targeting molecules, including peptides and antibodies, and their proprietary design can accommodate higher payloads of such targets while allowing for longer circulation time. Furthermore, X-SIGHT imaging agents are available in several distinct fluorescent wavelengths, enabling multi-fluorescent in vivo imaging. While the X-SIGHT imaging agents have been optimized for Kodak's In-Vivo Imaging Systems, they are also compatible with other commercially available systems.

X-SIGHT imaging agents are currently available for preclinical use in the United States and will be launched worldwide in March. Kodak further plans to introduce additional imaging agents throughout the year.
