New iBox Explorer Fluorescence Microscope Released

Oct 12 2016 Read 686 Times

UVP announces the release of the new iBox Explorer Fluorescence Microscope.  The Explorer system combines the technology from its macro imager, the iBox Scientia Imaging System, with new micro imaging technology that incorporates imaging individual cells.  The Explorer provides breakthrough advances in its dual lighting system and software controlled objectives.  The Explorer system supplies the benefit of using one complete system for macro and micro in vivo animal fluorescent imaging.     

In addition to imaging both the whole organ and cells of small animals, the Explorer delivers optical configurations that are parcentered and parfocal, allowing seamless imaging through the magnification ranges.  The leading-edge high frame rate cooled colour camera enables quick detection, image capture and high throughput.  The software automates research with total system control and allows easy creation of templates for reproducible and consistent results. 

One key component of the Explorer system is the new BioLite Xe excitation light source which provides a bright illumination source for fluorescent, visible, and NIR ranges.  The BioLite Xe source houses a xenon lamp that allows brilliant excitation of fluorescent probes in a variety of applications.  The BioLite Xe includes a motorised filter wheel for the addition of up to 8 independent excitation filters for convenient switching between experiments and multiplexing applications.  

The iBox Explorer Fluorescence Microscope is the ideal system for the following applications:

  • tumour shedding
  • tumour angiogenesis
  • micro/macro metastases
  • tumour/host margins and interactions
  • tumour micro environment
  • primary tumour growth
  • haematogenous trafficking
  • intralymphatic trafficking
  • extravasation

Leighton Smith: "We are excited about the new iBox Explorer and its ability to not only see from the whole organ but also down to the individual cell level. The release of the iBox Explorer further demonstrates UVP’s commitment to the continuing development of unique imaging technologies for live animal and plant in vivo applications."

Alex Waluszko: "Our market research identifies the requirement for quickly viewing fluorescent markers from whole organ to single cell was an unmet need. The iBox supplies an economical solution for even the smallest labs and budgets in the cancer research field."
