ExiTron U is a non-ionic iodine-based contrast agent of low molecular weight specifically formulated for pre-clinical computed tomography (CT).
It shows strong X-ray absorption due to its covalently bound iodine atoms.
Upon intravenous injection, ExiTron U is rapidly distributed in the extracellular space. No significant plasma protein–binding can be observed. ExiTron U is excreted unchanged via glomerular filtration (kidneys).

Detailed product information

Applications

ExiTron U is indicated for use in CT of small animals, for example mice, to facilitate the visualization of the vasculature.
Examples include contrast-enhanced angiography.
