Optical Imaging

The facility provides access to two IVIS® Lumina S5 high-throughput 2D optical imaging systems (one in biosafety level 1 area and the other in biosafety level 2 area) , which combine high-sensitivity bioluminescence and fluorescence in a benchtop format. The IVIS Lumina S5 one inch CCD camera allows for high throughput 20 x 20 cm Field of View (FOV), sufficient for imaging five animals simultaneously.
