InVi-SPIM

Dedicated to live imaging, the Luxendo InVi-SPIM is a microscope that has been optimized for long-term 3D fluorescence imaging of living specimens. Easy access to the sample chamber, maximized photo-efficiency, and short illumination times enable long-term imaging without harming live specimens.

The optical configuration combined with the fast acquisition speed of InVi-SPIM enables 3D reconstruction, tracking of cellular and subcellular positions, and morphological analysis in real time.

Typical applications of InVi-SPIM are in toto imaging of small animal models such as whole mouse embryos, imaging of dynamic processes in mammalian cell culture applications, and even live imaging of intact and living plant models.
