Elevated research

The Permetium is the first commercially dedicated preclinical imaging system that can quantify regional changes in pulmonary function.

Driven by XV Technology and powered by the highest output preclinical generator on the market today, Permetium is elevating research to unprecedented levels.

Designed for:

Medical Scientists, Doctors, Physiologists, Biologists and Pharmacologists with an interest in the field of respiratory research.

Suitable for study of:

  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Lung Cancer


Built for researchers, by researchers

Built and designed to run with XV Technology, the Permetium allows researchers to conduct investigations that were previously unimaginable or unaffordable within a lab setting.

Highly adaptable

It’s built for small animals and is highly adaptable. Offering extremely high resolution and high sensitivity scanning, it can be used as an X-ray device, a 3D CT scanner, and a 4D CT scanner. None of the specialised lung imaging capabilities requires the use of contrast agents.

A complete solution

The Permetium is an all-in-one device for lung imaging. In addition to the preclinical scanner, you’ll be equipped with a range of sample holders and our AccuVent 200 ventilator. And as the software has been specifically designed for the device, there’s no need to seek out alternative software.

Easy to use

The Permetium has been designed with the experimental process in mind. It’s easy to set up, easy to operate, and easy to upload your results.
