The project is being supported by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

“Cubresa is proud to introduce the NuPET Bio system and to have been selected by Innovative Solutions Canada to test the device in a COVID-19 research program.” said James Schellenberg, Cubresa’s Founder and CEO, “Cubresa currently designs preclinical imaging systems for researchers focused on a variety of application areas including oncology, stroke/inflammation research and tracer development. The introduction of the NuPET Bio now enables us to support the infectious disease community, as scientists work to better understand the COVID-19 virus and develop effective therapeutics to combat its effects.”
