The IVIS SpectrumCT 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. The simple user interface along with automated co-registration, advanced visualization and analysis tools are driven by PerkinElmer’s market leading Living Image® software. The IVIS Spectrum CT enables longitudinal workflows to characterize disease progression and therapeutic effect throughout the complete experimental time frame with both quantitative CT and optical reconstructions. 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.
