WEBINAR: Preclinical Imaging with Fluorescence In Vivo Endomicroscopy

This free webinar hosted by Scintica Instrumentation provided a comprehensive review of the latest laser confocal microscope technology called the FIVE2 from Optiscan Imaging.  The session included a hands-on demonstration of the system and an overview of various preclinical applications supported by sample images from a variety of animal models and tissue types.

The FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) from Optiscan Imaging is the latest and most competent model of LCE designed for effortless, real-time preclinical imaging in numerous animal models. This live webinar will provide scientists with the theoretical and practical knowledge of the FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) and its preclinical research applications. This webinar will feature a hands-on demonstration of the technology, imaging in different tissue types, Z sectioning, and other key capabilities of the system. Participants will also learn about FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) software features, its integration with ImageJ, and 3-D video capture of tissue architecture. During this session, we will also discuss the advantages of the FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) over its predecessor (FIVE1) and the primitive bundle fibre technology.

Topics to be discussed in this webinar include:

  • The advantages of laser confocal endomicroscopy over benchtop confocal microscopy and PET/MRI
  • Hardware functionality and software operation of the FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) – fluorescence in vivo endomicroscope
  • How to use the FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) for imaging tissue architecture with cellular resolution and for optical sectioning
  • How to apply the FIVE2 (ViewnVivo) in preclinical imaging
  • Troubleshooting and safety tips of the FIVE2 (ViewnVivo)
