VISQUE® InVivo Elite

VISQUE® inVivo Elite is a preclinical in vivo fluorescent & bioluminescent imaging and analysis system.

High Performance Cooling Camera

1) High Sensitivity Sensor

  • Pixel Pitch: 5.5 ㎛
  • Dynamic Range: 64 dB

2) Thermoelectric Cooling Technology

  • Cooling up to -20℃ below the ambient: unlike structures that use gas refrigerant to cool the system down, it does not require periodic replacement of refrigerant gas, making it easier to manage the system.

3) Multi-wavelength Fluorescence and Bioluminescence Imaging

  • Multi-wavelength: from visible to near-infrared wavelengths
  • Frame Rate: 24 fps

Motorized Full HD Lens

1) Precise Control

  • Zoom with 9 Steps: 1x - 6x
  • Iris with 10 Steps: f/1.8 - close
  • Focus with 21 Steps: 0 cm - 10 cm

2) Various Field of View

  • Field of View: controls field of view from 5 cm x 4 cm to 28 cm x 21 cm
  • Imaging of More than 5 Mice

3) Real-time Imaging

  • Preview: views the interior of the darkroom in real-time to check the animals or control the zoom and focus of the lens precisely.

Advanced Emission Filter & Motorized Filter Wheel

1) Hard-coating Emission Filter

  • Minimization of Autofluorescence and Reflection
  • Blocking to a Level of OD 7

2) User-defined Filter Wheel

  • Up to 9 Emission Filters

3) Motorized Filter Wheel

  • Convenient Control with Dedicated Software, CleVue

Special Design for Real-time Imaging

1) Faster Imaging

  • Double Doors: easy to take images when near infrared fluorescence imaging using the inner door.
  • Foot Switch: users can use both hands freely by stepping on the foot switch to start taking images.

2) Convenient Operation

  • Sliding Stage
  • Head Holder: minimizes animal movement using a head holder integrated with an anesthetic gas adapter (options for mouse and rat are available.)
  • Marker for Center Location of Imaging

3) Easy System Control

  • LCD Touch Screen: users can easily control external light, stage temperature, lens zoom, and imaging settings, etc.
  • Easy System Status Check
