Product Details

Now researchers can take detection of fluorescent markers in small animals to a new level with the iBox Explorer² Imaging Microscope! The iBox Explorer² is a live cell imaging system with the unique ability to view from the macro-level to micro-level – from the whole animal to individual cell, subcutaneously and within the body cavity of mice. The upright optics provide an ultra-long working distance and high numerical aperture (NA) for detailed fluorescent in vivo imaging.

The UVP iBox Explorer² easily detects GFP/RFP and other fluorescent markers in small animals. The capabilities of this in vivo imager enables research studies inclusive of whole animal down to individual cells.

Focusing on Fluorescent Cancer Cell Detection

In research performed (image left), HT1080 fluorescent cancer cells were injected into the epigastrica cranialis. Immediately after the injection, the fluorescence indicated the cells escaped around the injection sites. In the zoomed in views, a cluster of cancer cells can be observed in the blood stream.

System Capabilities
  • Capture images with a superior cooled CCD camera and optics that are optimized for VIS - NIR imaging
  • View the whole animal to the single cell level via the motorized optics
  • Seamlessly navigate the image through all magnification ranges from 0.17x to 16.5x
  • Control eLITE excitation filters and light intensity via the software interface
  • Generate continuous excitation spectrum with the configurable filters for fluorescence microscopy
  • Slide-out warming plate maintains uniform temperature
  • Create optimum imaging conditions with the light tight darkroom
  • See quick sample inspection with unique viewing window
  • Simply adjust the position of the X, Y, Z-axis of the motorized stage with the joystick
