The PerkinElmer IVIS® SpectrumCT preclinical in vivo imaging system is an integrative platform that combines the full suite of IVIS optical features including Spectral Unmixing, 2D and 3D quantitative bioluminescence and fluorescence with fast and low dose CT imaging, ideal for longitudinal studies.
The system provides researchers with greater insights into complex biological systems by enabling simultaneous molecular and anatomical non-invasive imaging in animal models.
Fast imaging and the ability to image multiple animals offers the throughput required to scan large cohorts of animals quickly and draw sound conclusions from your experimental data.
The system is equipped with an isoflurane anesthesia system, low-autofluorescence optics and a cooled CCD camera (‑90°C) in addition to the X-ray source.
The IVIS® SpectrumCT is equipped with 28filters (10 excitation filters and 18 emission filters) to image fluorescent sources that emit from green to near-infrared. The X-ray module employs automated image integration to overlay with bioluminescence, fluorescence and photography.
The system is located at the Gutwirth Bldg. at the Technion main campus.

Key features include:
Integrated optical and microCT technology
3D optical tomography for fluorescence and bioluminescence
High sensitive detection technology ideal for:
Multispectral fluorescence and spectral unmixing
Cerenkov imaging for optical radiotracer imaging
Low dose and ultra fast microCT
DyCE™ dynamic enhanced imaging for real time distribution studies of both fluorochromes and PET tracers ideal for PK/PD app
The IVIS Spectrum CT Living Image software allows absolute quantification (photons/sec/cmsq/sr) of bioluminescence and fluorescence signal, for in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro studies.
The software supports accurate autofluorescence removal, spectral unmixing, fluorophore quantitation, automatic ROI creation, background subtraction and scaling.
The software is available IVIS Spectrum -CT work station.
