FluorVivo™ 100

The FluorVivo Model 100 represents the next generation in in vivo fluorescence imaging of small animals. Developed by INDEC BioSystems, the Model 100 performs in vivo whole body imaging of fluorescent structures, supporting a single probe of your choice from blue to NIR. It is an ideal starter system, optimized for a broad range of scientific applications, from basic research to pre-clinical drug screens.

FluorVivo is a personal single-wavelength instrument that complements your current fluorescence instruments and is available at a fraction of the cost of other in vivo imaging systems. FluorVivo's modularity means you can always elect to add useful options to the system to upgrade or adapt it to new experimental requirements. FluorVivo brings the power of in vivo imaging and analysis both to core facilities and the individual laboratory.

The Model 100 is modular and fully upgradeable to accommodate multiprobe applications, supports multiple cameras for more speed/sensitivity options, and can be complemented by a variable magnification option, the FluorVivo Mag.

    Essential and Unique Features of the Model 100
  • In vivo fluorescence imaging for a single probe from CFP and GFP out to ICG in the NIR (FluorVivo Probe List)
  • When used for GFP, it is optimized for simultaneous imaging (in a single exposure) of both GFP and RFP
  • Real time multicolor imaging ? images are in full color
  • Live video imaging and recording ? perfect for fluorescence surgery applications
  • Quantitative ? manual and automated analysis capabilities included
  • A complete, turn-key system with the lowest cost of ownership on the market

Applications
Applications include live animal screening, fluorescence-guided surgery, dynamic imaging, tumor growth, angiogenesis, stem cell research, and validation of animal models.

    The Power of Fluorescence Imaging
    In vivo fluorescence imaging techniques offer significant benefits when compared with bioluminescence methods:
  • Speed ? Real-time imaging so fast that anesthesia is not required; each acquisition takes only a fraction of a second
  • Efficiency ? streamlined operation, even by a single person
  • Convenience ? anesthesia is rarely required
  • Simplicity ? a gentle animal restraint is usually sufficient
  • Economy ? new low price point, no maintenance cost
  • Flexibility ? genetic control of expression of multiple, distinct fluorescent proteins permit almost unlimited experimental possibilities
  • Future prospects ? will take optimal advantage of new markers (e.g. new fluorescent proteins, quantum dots)

More than the Sum of its Parts
Imaging with FluorVivo can be as simple as this:
Place the animal in its restraint and place the restraint in the chamber. Then click the button to begin collecting data ? each acquisition takes only a fraction of a second.
FluorVivo?s quantitative capabilities for measurement and image analysis, together with its reporting tools, make data analysis as simple and reliable as taking a picture.
The unprecedented ease of use and cost-effectiveness make FluorVivo an important tool for molecular imaging, for both basic and pre-clinical research. This unique combination of capabilities and affordability make FluorVivo the most cost-effective in vivo fluorescence imaging system available on the market today.
