Small Animal Imaging System iBox Scientia

UVP iBox Scientia Small Animal Imaging System

  • Selection of high resolution, high sensitivity CCD cameras for in vivo imaging
  • Motorized optics for setting the aperture, zoom and focus
  • Unique viewing window enables quick sample inspection
  • Matched emission/excitation filter sets specifically for small animal imaging
  • Automated control of the five-position emission filter array to allow addition of emissions for visible, IR and UV to meet all spectral requirements

Product details

UVP iBox Scientia Small Animal Imaging System is designed to automate your in vivo small animal imaging research. System enables non-invasive detection of fluorescent and bioluminescent reporters in mice. The one-touch, pre-set or user-defined controls are easy to use for accurate, repeatable imaging.


  • Light tight darkroom creates optimum imaging conditions
  • Unique viewing window is UV blocking for quick sample inspection
  • Automated control of the five-position emission filter array
  • Power lift is adjustable to any setting in a ten inch travel range (manual lift also available); automated calibrating home position synchronizes the power lift at start-up

Warming Plate

Warming Plate provides a platform for maintaining a regulated temperature of small animals to prevent hypothermia. The stable temperature enables consistent day-to-day results.

UVP eLITE MultiSpectral Source

  • External power supply houses the eight position filter wheel
  • Automated design controls the filter wheel and six intensity positions
  • Fiber optic light source connects through the darkroom port for epi or transillumination
  • Matched excitation/emission green fluorescent protein (GFP) and red fluorescent protein (RFP) excitation filter are included; other filter sets available

Software Interface

  • Software automates your research for easy, yet accurate and repeatable results
  • Controls the eLITE, darkroom’s epi and transillumination UV and white light, emission filter selection and system power
  • Allows selection of user-defined or default settings
  • Set templates and user preferences for recurring experiments
