The IVIS Lumina II from Caliper Life Sciences provides an expandable, sensitive imaging system that is easy to use for both fluorescent and bioluminescent imaging in vivo. The system includes a highly sensitive CCD camera, light-tight imaging chamber, and complete automation and analysis capabilities. As the leading optical imaging platform for in vivo analysis, IVIS systems include a range of practical accessories developed through experience in research laboratories worldwide.
Quantitative – Flexible - Expandable:
An adjustable field of view from 5 – 12.5 cm and an optional 24cm lens allows imaging of up to 5 mice or 2 medium size rats. The Lumina II can also accommodate Petri dishes or micro-titer plates for in vitro imaging. The system includes premium animal handling features such as a heated stage, gas anesthesia connections, and ECG monitoring. High resolution, sharp cut-off filters are simply interchangeable to achieve the highest performance, sensitivity, and spectral un-mixing in fluorescence imaging.
Superior Imaging Results:
The IVIS Lumina II is capable of imaging both fluorescent and bioluminescent reporters. The system is equipped with up to 21 filter sets that can be used to image reporters that emit from green to near-infrared. Superior spectral un-mixing can be achieved by Lumina II’s optional high resolution short cut off filters. Absolute calibration affords you consistent and reproducible results independent of magnification, filter selection from one instrument to any another IVIS instrument within an organization or around the world. The Living Image software yields high-quality, reproducible, quantitative results incorporating instrument calibration, background subtraction, and the image algorithms.
