A better mouse model of retinal vein occlusion with the Phoenix MICRON™ laser and OCT

Retinal vein occlusion is the second most common retinal vascular disorder leading to loss of vision in developed countries (after diabetic retinopathy). A lack of treatment options is partially caused by a lack of effective animal models; most rodent models do not show the essential symptom of cystoid edema and often heal quickly. In their

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

Corneal Thickness Analysis using OCT

Corneal images taken with the Phoenix Micron IV OCT used for thickness analysis King et al, a consortium of researchers at a range of institutions, recently used the Phoenix Micron IV OCT to examine corneal thickness in their article, “Genomic locus modulating corneal thickness in the mouse identifies POU6F2 as a potential risk of developing
