Small Animal Imaging System — iBox® Scientia™

The iBox Scientia Small Animal Imaging System allows users to automate in vivo imaging of small animals. The iBox Scientia enables highly precise, repeatable imaging using computer-led, one-touch or pre-set control systems.

The system utilizes next-generation optics and an advanced cooled CCD camera to offer high-resolution, high-grade in vivo images.

Analytik-Jena has teamed up with AntiCancer, Inc. to provide fluorescent proteins for the in vivo imaging of small animals. The iBox Scientia system, together with research technology from AntiCancer, Inc., enables scientists to access a broad array of different tools and techniques for in vivo imaging.
