In vivo / in situ Confocal Imaging Microscopy (IV-CIM)
Biomedical Materials

IV-CIM is a novel technology that enables cellular and subcellular images of any tissue to be determined by direct contact in 3D in vitro constructs or in vivo. Optical slicing can be conducted at multiple time points for high throughput monitoring.

Cellvizio Lab Software 2.1.0


This has multiple applications of relevance across neuroscience, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, stem cell, alimentary and epithelial / stromal research. It is possible to dynamically monitor physiological and pathophysiological parameters by delivering light through the use of confocal probes directly to the tissue of interest. The technology enables characterisation of the inflammatory response and to determine the immunological basis for implanted biomaterials within a given tissue on a live and repeated basis.
