Phoenix MICRON™ MICRON IV
Retinal Imaging microscope for in vivo retinal imaging of small laboratory animals
Designed to support eye and eye-brain research using rodents
- Retina resolutions below 3 microns
- 3 Imaging Modalities
- Real-time display with capture of stills or videos
- Flexible & Scalable: Add Image-guided OCT, Image-guided Laser, Image-guided ERG, or Slit Lamp
“Exceptionally good imaging system for rodents. The whole system is user friendly, which makes it possible to finish the complete examination of an animal before any cataract can occur. The angiography function produces high quality images, where you can see single cells moving within the vessels. The use of this system to image mice with pigmented retinas is also absolutely possible..”

The Phoenix MICRON IV retinal imaging microscope delivers remarkable bright-field images, fluorescein and Evan’s blue angiography, and fluorescent imaging of common reporter molecules such as GFP, YFP, mCherry and CFP.
Phoenix MICRON IV Features:
- Custom three-chip CCD provides improved sensitivity for capturing even fainter fluorescent images.
- New capability for imaging in the near infrared opens opportunities to capture long wavelength fluoropores and angiograms
- Improvements in the already easy-to-use ergonomic design enable additional filter choices and easier to use controls
