The Caliper/Xeongen Lumina IVIS is an in vivo imaging system. It is a highly sensitive imaging system that allows flexibility to image fluorescent and/or bioluminescent reporters both in vivo and in vitro, non-invasively. It includes a highly sensitive CCD camera, a light-tight imaging chamber with complete computer automation, and the Living Image® software package for image acquisition and analysis. An adjustable field of view from 5–12.5 cm allows imaging of up to 3 mice or a medium size rat, or plant and also accommodates standard microtiter plates for in vitro imaging. The system includes a heated sample shelf.
