Photon etc. is proud to announce the official release of its long-awaited IR VIVO™, a brand new ground-breaking pre-clinical imaging system.
Using the first (NIR) and second biological window (NIR-II) from 900-1620 nm, Photon etc.’s IR VIVO™ preclinical imager provides multispectral or hyperspectral infrared imaging capabilities for in vivo studies on small animals or living organisms. It combines micron-scale spatial resolution, real-time imaging and full spectral coverage throughout small animals. Emission of several fluorophores can be isolated with a high-efficiency tunable filter and ultra-low noise scientific-grade InGaAs camera.
It allows seeing both structure and function by combining:
- Fast acquisition speed
- Micron-scale spatial resolution
Centimetre-scale penetration depth; 10 times deeper than visible optical imaging alternatives.
Some of NIR II imaging properties and applications:
- Non-ionizing & non-invasive
- Probes for multispectral imaging
- Intrinsic contrast
- Functional imaging
High temporal resolution = Real-time dynamics
