In vivo Plant Imaging System

The NightShade LB 985 In vivo Plant Imaging System is a modular, easy to use optical imaging system dedicated to in vivo analysis of plants.

Equipped with an absolutely light-tight cabinet and a cooled CCD camera it enables sensitive luminescence and fluorescence monitoring in tissues, seedlings and whole plants.

The camera can be attached either to the ceiling or the side walls of the darkroom – the sample chamber – to facilitate imaging from above and from the side. Simulate key environmental conditions like temperature or humidity while powerful LED panels enable you to perform daylight simulation.

Supported by easy-to-use software to help you optimize your productivity and co-optimized accessories you can configure the system to meet your research needs.  

“I am a big fan of the instrument! It is definitely a multipurpose tool and there is nothing like it in the market.”

Rajnish Khanna, Mendel Biotechnology Inc., Hayward.

Regulation of gene expression & expression pattern analysis

  • Transcriptional regulation underlying the circadian clock
  • Gene responses to stress
  • Promoter studies
  • Mutant screening
  • Regulation of plant growth

 

Disease monitoring

  • In vivo monitoring of infectious diseases, parasites and disease progression 

 

In planta drug discovery

  • Use of genetically modified plants as low-cost screening tools for evaluation of drug efficacy

High-performance CCD camera to meet your application needs:

 

  • IK slow-scan CCD camera cooled to a delta of -100°C for lowest background and highest sensitivity, even at long exposure times

 

Easy to use software for advanced imaging:

  • IndiGO™ software for complete instrument control, image aqcquisition and analysis
  • Multi wavelength (luminescence / fluorescence) overlay capabilities
  • Create movies from image sequences
  • Apply image changes to the whole experiment to save time
  • Powerful 3D view

 

 

 

Fully modular system to meet your research needs

  • Large, sophisticated light-tight sample chamber
  • 2 LED panels with 4 different colours each for daylight simulation
  • Light-tight ports to insert cables, or tubings, e.g. to water plants
  • Side view camera mounting to analyse seedlings in their natural vertical orientation
  • Various sample holders to monitor plants from different angles
  • Green LED photo illumination (no excitation of chlorophyll)
