PerkinElmer Introduces a Pre-Clinical High-Throughput Bioluminescence Small Animal Imaging System
PerkinElmer introduces the IVIS® SpectrumBL, developed to enable the pharmaceutical and biotech industries to improve efficiencies in pre-clinical imaging studies by increasing in vivo throughput for drug efficacy, safety and toxicology.
The IVIS SpectrumBL high-throughput 2D and 3D optical imaging system is currently the only system that can simultaneously image up to 10 mice with full gas anesthesia incorporation along with ultra-high sensitivity to support bioluminescence, chemiluminescence and Cerenkov radioisotopic imaging. PerkinElmer's leading optical imaging technology facilitates non-invasive longitudinal monitoring of disease progression, cell trafficking and gene expression patterns in living animals to enable customers to quantitatively evaluate drug efficacy. The IVIS SpectrumBL features a 5 and a 10 mouse anesthesia manifold for larger cohorts, offering robust in vivo data, as well as significantly increasing the potential number of compounds that can be screened in vivo in early stages of pre-clinical drug discovery.
