Imaging Studies on Fish in Space?

Researchers in Japan are studying fish in space. Or put more eloquently, researchers are studying the effects of microgravity on medaka fish at the international space station. This research lends itself to learning more about the effects of gravity of the human body.

While researchers already know that a lack of gravity disrupts the bone density of humans who spend extended periods of time in space, the reason behind this is still unknown.

Lead researcher, Kudo, found these fish experienced a genetic change in certain cells, osteoblast and osteoclast, which are partially responsible for the cell structure, and therefore anatomy of most living beings. However, unexpectedly, these changes in cells happened almost immediately after launch-only a day after arriving at the space station.

For these research studies, we provide a number of tech accessories, like our MRI Stereo and SAMM System our patient monitoring CCTV system, to ensure quality and comfort for your volunteers. We also offers a wide array of pediatric equipment, mri-safety equipment, and non-mri safe supplies
