UVP iBox® Explorer2 TM Imaging Microscope

Macro to Micro Fluorescent In Vivo Small Animal Imaging

Now researchers can take detection of fluorescent markers in small animals to a new level with the iBox Explorer 2 Imaging Microscope! The iBox Explorer 2 is unique in its ability to view macro to micro in 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 small animal imaging system enables research studies in whole animal down to individual cells.
