IR VIVO™ – NIR-II Preclinical Multispectral Imager

The IR VIVO™ by Photon etc is an NIR-II in-vivo multispectral, preclinical imager for small animal studies. It provides non-invasive spectral imaging in the first (NIR) and second (NIR-II) biological windows, from 900-1620nm. The IR-VIVO™ provides multispectral or hyperspectral infrared imaging for in-vivo research on small animals or other living organisms.

Visualize microvasculature, monitor blood flow and metabolic imaging, monitor heart and respiratory rates (contact free), monitor cell environment (pH, lipid, mRNA) and identify cancer tissue and guide real time surgery. The IR-VIVO™ is ideal for in-vivo applications involving detection in the second biological window, in particular drugs, toxicology, diagnostic, IR tracers and labels and development studies. In addition, the IR-VIVO™ can be used for the evaluation of oxygenated versus deoxygenated blood ratios and nanoparticles distributions.

A combination of fast acquisition speed, multicolour imaging, high spatial resolution and good penetration depth (10x greater than traditional visible optical systems) means the IR-VIVO™ captures both structure and function in its spectral images. Emission of several fluorophores can be isolated with a high-efficiency tunable filter and ultra-low noise scientific-grade InGaAs camera (Alizé 1.7 or ZephIR 1.7).

IR-VIVO™ performs multispectral imaging using a filter wheel and hyperspectral imaging with a continuously tunable spectral range from 500 to 1620nm and a spectral resolution of <4nm. By virtue of its Hypercube VBG global high-efficiency filters and high-speed scientific grade SWIR cameras, IR VIVO™ can accurately isolate the emission of several IR labels. The imager provides the perfect tool for all applications that involve detection in the second biological window.

The IR VIVO™ is non-ionizing & non-invasive and measures 77 x 60 x 98cm tabletop size.
