Phoenix MICRON CNV System used to test a novel treatment for age-related macular degeneration

In their paper, “Suppression of Choroidal Neovascularization by AAV-Based Dual-Acting Antiangiogenic Gene Therapy,” Askou et al develop an adeno-associated virus (AAV) treatment for age-related macular degeneration. Beautiful fluorescent fundoscopy performed with the Phoenix MICRON validated the success of the subretinal AAV injection, while precise choroidal neovascularization (CNV) induced by Phoenix laser burns confirmed that the

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

Fundus and OCT imaging shows that smart phone-like blue light exposure leads to retinal disruption in rats

Researchers Lin et al at Taipei Medical University shared an alarming finding that blue light, similar to that emitted by smart phones, can lead to retinal disruption in rats. They used the Phoenix Technology Group’s Phoenix MICRON fundus camera and the image-guided OCT to demonstrate blood vessel leakage and retinal thinning after intermittent blue light
