(June 23, 2021) Webinar #2 – Introducing the IVM Intravital Microscope


In this second session of the IVM webinar series, we took a deeper look at the IVM all-in-one intravital microscope. The IVM system is a carefully engineered state-of-the-art intravital fluorescence microscopy platform optimized to perform real-time imaging of dynamic phenomena in in vivo tissues at a cellular level. This technique can serve as a next generation core technology to elucidate the pathophysiology of various human diseases and assist in the discovery of new cures. We reviewed the different modules of the system allowing for intravital confocal and/or two-photon imaging, along with the features and benefits of each set-up.

Key Features

  • All-in-one intravital microscopy system with a flexible design for modification and updates
  • Optimized for in vivo observation of dynamic processes in mouse models of human disease
  • Four-color simultaneous confocal/two-photon imaging
  • Sub-µm image resolution and ultrafast video-rate imaging (max. 100 fps – 512×512 pixels)
  • Integrated automatic high-precision motion artifact compensation

Key Applications

  • In Vivo 4D cell imaging, tracking and monitoring
  • In Vivo visualization of dynamic molecular & cellular mechanisms
  • In Vivo efficacy monitoring of novel drug compound
  • In Vivo monitoring of material delivery target tissues
  • In Vivo real-time imaging of microcirculation

Our  attendees had  an overview of the different modules of the IVM system and an understanding of the features and benefits of each IVM module.

Please join the subsequent parts in this webinar series to learn more about the IVM system, as we dive into the system’s successful applications and perform a live demo showcasing the software and hardware components of the IVM system:
