Developing a unique, novel dry AMD model with the Phoenix MICRON laser injector

The most common cause of blindness in developed societies, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) robs the victim of the crucially important focused macular vision. While still devastating, wet AMD has a robust mouse model and the treatment option of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) subretinal injections. The Phoenix MICRON laser allows precise delivery of 532 nm

Phoenix OCT reveals detailed images of retinal and anterior chamber infiltrates in a uveitis mouse model

In their article “Multimodal analysis of ocular inflammation using the endotoxin-induced uveitis mouse model,” Chu et al used images captured with the Phoenix OCT of the retina and anterior segment to correlate infiltrate level with neutrophil count during uveitis. To develop objective multimodal methods of analyzing infected eyes, they also examined flow cytometry of infiltrates,
