    Description

    The Caliper IVIS Lumina II enables real-time, non-invasive visualisation and tracking of fluorescent or bioluminescent cells, proteins or gene activity within a living animal. It can also be used to visualise dishes, plates and tissue samples.

    The system integrates a highly sensitive charge-coupled device (CCD) cooled camera capable of detecting exceptionally low light levels, with a light-tight imaging chamber and includes a broad range of filter sets that permits imaging of a wide range of fluorophores.
