  • We can't recommend Moor instruments highly enough. The technology is at the cutting edge and the support second to none.

    Paul Sumners, PhD
    London South Bank University

  • I expect to be using Moor Instrument’s technology for many years to come!

    Ninewells Hospital & Medical School

  • Laser Doppler Imager is a standard accurate method we now use in our cerebral blood flow and brain perfusion in our laboratory.

    Momoh A. Yakubu, PhD
    Texas Southern University

  • It goes without saying that the company's imaging technology itself is superb!

    Gourav Banerjee
    Leeds Beckett University

  • I cannot rate the company or the staff highly enough.

This system has now been superseded by the moorVMS-LDF, for full details please click here.

Unfortunately optic probes for this product are no longer manufactured.

The MBF3D was the first system to offer dual channel monitoring to allow customers to easily compare blood flow at two sites simultaneously. The monitor featured a unique self contained design with graphic display, data memory, in built colour plotter and easy PC / analogue connections. A highly advanced solution, for the time, that would still compete today.

We are able to support this system with calibration fluid, PC software, plotter paper and pens ONLY. If you are not sure of the safety or functionality of the system then our technicians can help with an ‘MBF3D™ check’. The MBF3D ceased manufacture in 1993 so some internal components are no longer available. We can advise on a case by case basis.
