Retina as window to the brain: Stunning Phoenix MICRON™ fluorescein angiography images of brain and retinal vasculature

Novel comparison of retina and brain vasculature leads to stunning Phoenix MICRON images of fluorescent brain blood vessels The Phoenix MICRON imaging platform produces stunning images of fluorescent retinal vasculature through fluorescein angiography but for the first time, researchers have also captured beautiful images of cortical brain vasculature. Hui et al, in their well-written and

Measuring adeno-associated virus improvements with Phoenix MICRON™ fluorescent imaging and Phoenix MICRON™ Ganzfeld ERG

A team of researchers at the Indian Institutes of Technology have published three detailed articles examining how to improve adeno-associated viruses (AAV). Maurya, S, Mary, B, Jayandharan, GR et al -approach the improvement of the viruses in a stunningly detailed gene-to-cell-to-whole-mouse model, narrowing down a multitude of options and producing impressive fluorescent fundus images and

Treating retinitis pigmentosa with cassia seed: Retinal layer analysis with the Phoenix MICRON OCT and Insight software

Retinitis pigmentosa is a genetic disorder that leads to severe vision impairment and blindness. The photoreceptors die off in a self-propelling cycle of rod and cone dysfunction, leading to glial activation and death, leading to more dysfunction. There are a few experimental treatments but no widespread effective treatment or cure. Cassia seed is used in

Phoenix MICRON FA reveals more leakage in iron-overload model of diabetic retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a crippling complication of diabetes that can lead to loss of vision, characterized by retinal inflammation, neurodegeneration, and disorganized microvascularization . Oxidative stress is crucial to the development of diabetic retinopathy. Iron is an essential micronutrient but, in excess, can become a highly damaging oxidative species. Excessive iron has been implicated in Parkinson’s

Phoenix MICRON™ OCT tracks individual stem cells in the rat retina

In the July edition of Nanomedicine journal, Chemla et al demonstrate a fascinating and novel way to label and track individual photoreceptor precursor cells migrating within the retina with fluorescence and gold nanoparticle tagging using the Phoenix MICRON and OCT. Many retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa are characterized by photoreceptor

The Secret to a Perfect Fundus Image

Hint: It Starts with the Animal Angle   During our hands-on training, we review animal positioning until every user is completely comfortable.  But like most other lab equipment task, it does take some practice.  Aligning the animal just right can be the difference between a great and a good fundus image.  We’ve put together a
