Olympus OV110 Small Animal Imaging System

The OV110 is a new imaging system that allows researchers to observe fluorescent markers in live animals at the whole animal, organ, tissue, and single cell level, with a single optical instrument. The OV110 provides a 114:1 zoom ratio change and features superior optics for high resolution and efficiency of light collection. The OV110 integrates many basic needs of whole animal imaging including the removal of auto-fluorescence background and high performance in the NIR range up to 1000nm for fluorescence detection. The OV110 also allows the user to choose a CCD camera to meet the specific demands of their research i.e. high resolution, high speed, or low light sensitivity.
