Harness Portability and Human Approved Clinical Scanning

Sometimes research environments may be short on space, especially with the amount of equipment that can be used for conducting research studies and animal trials. Take advantage of the small footprint that the Sonix systems provide with either the SonixTouch cart or the hand-carried SonixTablet, both equipped with high-frequency imaging performance.

High Frequency Transducers

BK Ultrasound’s Sonix systems offers a suite of high frequency transducers with bandwidths ranging 1 to 40MHz.

  • The revolutionary L40-8/12 is a small footprint transducer for small and medium sized animals
  • The new L40-12/10 transducer comes with an even higher center frequency and a smaller footprint


High frequency technology can be combined with the SonixDAQ, a parallel channel data acquisition tool for acquiring high frame rate (over 10,000 FPS) raw ultrasound data. This also supports acquisition of pre-clinical photo-acoustic images. Do all of this while targeting in real-time with a B mode image on the display.

Additional Transducers

We offer a range of transducers that are interchangeable among Sonix systems.
