Product details

Optimized in vivo fluorescence imaging

The UVP iBox Studio touch is sophistication and ease of use in one system for high resolution small animal fluorescence imaging. From in depth in vivo studies to quick screening, researchers can use this compact yet powerful imaging system to perform their choice of in vivo fluorescence application. Camera and light source options provide maximum flexibiliy in system configuration.

Versatility of a wide spectrum:

The UVP iBox Studio is versatile and can support imaging of any probe in the visible to near infrared (NIR) range (400 to 900nm). NIR imaging minimizes skin autofluorescence (~650nm) and allows 3x to 8x deeper penetration. The wide spectrum also offers more options for multiplex labeling. This capability enables visualization of tissue/tissue interaction, enhanced signal to background ratio, and detection of multiple fluorescent proteins or labels.

High performance cameras and software:

Optimize your application by choosing between two high performance cooled camera options. Each camera is configured with the UVP iBox Studio to enable rapid in vivo imaging and repeat observation with minimal disturbance to the subject. The included VisionWorks Software tools provide users with the freedom to apply image enhancement and analysis features when needed. They create uncompromised raw data and preserve this true data, promising the highest quantitative value. The enhancement and analysis features offered include many powerful tools, such as: colony counting, area density, noise reduction, background subtraction, inversion, pseudocolor, compositing, and more.

Optional anesthesia system:

Several components are combined in the optional UVP anesthesia system in order to regulate and administer a combination of oxygen and isoflurane/sevoflurane gas to the animal. The initial anesthesia is performed in the induction chamber. The animal is then moved to the warming plate inside the iBox darkroom and connected to a nose cone. The warming plate generates uniform temperature conditions which maintain a safe body temperature of the animal during the imaging process. Multiple-port manifold allows up to three at one time. A pull-out tray in the darkroom enables hassle-free placement of mice in the darkroom chamber.  A low profile breathing device on the plate connects to patented valves. The system’s non-rebreathing technology prevents backflow of gases into the darkroom and ensures user safety.
