Small Animal Imaging Core Facility

  • About Optical Imaging

    Combines advanced multispectral fluorescence, luminescence, digital X-ray and radioisotopic imaging for in vivo small animal imaging in a single system. The system’s new multispectral tuning of excitation light provides enhanced sensitivity allowing for the identification and separation of multiple fluorophore and the removal of autofluorescence background. The Carestream In-Vivo Multispectral FX PRO automatically generates multispectral fluorophore image “cubes” with spatially co-registered X-ray and white light images for improved localization of biological markers in-vivo.

    Optical Imaging Equipment

    The optical imaging equipment located in the SAIC is a Carestream IN-Vivo MS FX Pro. This system is capable of multispectral fluorescence, luminescence, radioistopic and high resolution X-ray imaging.
