In Vivo Imaging From Whole Organ to Single Cell

UVP, LLC announces the release of the new iBox® Explorer™ Fluorescence Microscope at ASM. The Explorer system combines the technology from its macro imager, the iBox Scientia™ Imaging System, with new micro imaging technology that incorporates imaging tissues, tissue margins and individual cells. The Explorer provides breakthrough advances in its dual lighting system and software controlled objectives. The Explorer system supplies the benefit of using one complete system for macro and micro in vivo animal fluorescent imaging. 
"The iBox Explorer is significant for speed and versatility," according to Sean Gallagher (VP and CTO UVP). "Enabling the rapid and multiplexed fluorescence detection of tumor margins and micro metastasis, the Explorer cleanly separates normal from cancer tissues via the cell's fluorescent signature. Operating in the visible and NIR wavelengths, the Explorer yields detailed images of tissues and cells or, using the joy stick, 'flies' across an area such as the open abdominal region or skin flap of a mouse for rapid screening." In addition to imaging both the whole organ and cells of small animals, the Explorer delivers optical configurations that are parcentered and parfocal, allowing seamless imaging through the magnification ranges.
