For techniques that are not operational within VitaK we rely on the close collaboration with the University Hospital Maastricht. Examples of in-house infrastructure and methodology are:

  • MRI scanners up to 9.4 Tesla (collaboration with Brains Unlimited)

  • DEXA bone densitometry

  • Carotid artery echotracking

  • Local and regional pulse wave velocity

  • Blood sampling (venipuncture)

  • GCP certified personnel

  • Equipped for human intervention trials (food and pharma)

  • Equipped for clinical trials

  • Access to the UM Medical Ethics Committee

  • Collaboration with University Hospital specialists
