Vivascope 2500

Fresh specimen imaging
The VIVASCOPE 2500 is a confocal microscope specially designed for imaging fresh, needle aspirated, or fixed specimens in reflectance (phase contrast) mode or in fluorescence mode for specimens stained with fluorochromes. Specimens can be examined in near real-time without time consuming processing procedures. The Vivascope 2500 is used by physicians and other licensed healthcare professionls to view enlarged imgaes of specimens during pathological examinations.

Features

  • Two lasers:
    • 488nm (blue)

  • Filter sets for fluorescent dyes including:
    • Acridine orange
    • Fluorescein
    • Indocyanine green
  • Digital macro camera:
    • Offers high-resolution photo of specimen
    • Correlates to confocal image for navigation
    • Simplifies selection of imaged area

SINGLE IMAGE
The VIVASCOPE 2500 generates single images of tissue that are parallel to the tissue surface or on the “horizontal plane” .

The image depth, or position within the specimen, is changed by moving the objective lens up, down or laterally, relative to the specimen surface.
STACK
A series of horizontal images captured in “Z-depth”, or from the surface of the specimen to a preconfigured depth. The image plane is incrementally changed by moving the objective lens of the VIVASCOPE 2500 and images are captured at consecutively deeper depths within the tissue.
MOSAIC
An array of images taken on a single horizontal plane creates a mosaic. The VIVASCOPE 2500 scans the objective lens laterally over the tissue while capturing a series of images and displaying them as a composite image covering an area up to 20 x 20mm.
