The IRina™ in vivo spectral probe can deliver full spectral measurements in the NIR-II range. Ideal to measure fluorescence emission from nanosensors or new dyes, its small form factor and ergonomic benchtop design allow easy measurement inside small living animals or thick tissues. Using the included PHySpec™ software, multiple acquisitions and time series are straightforward to acquire and analyze.

In Vivo NIR-II Imaging: A Disruptive Force for Preclinical Research

Authors Stephen Marchant, Jacob Yvon-Leroux and Émilie Beaulieu Ouellet

Abstract

In vivo imaging in the second near-infrared biological window (NIR-II) is in its early stages but will undoubtedly affect life science research on many levels. The NIR-II (short-wave infrared, or SWIR) imaging modality is not affected by drawbacks of light propagation in living tissues in the same way that other techniques are. Thus, it enables much deeper real-time imaging of optical probes in…
