Cataracts caused by lens protein knockout imaged using the Phoenix MICRON IV Slit Lamp

In their article, “CRYβA3/A1-Crystallin Knockout Develops Nuclear Cataract and Causes Impaired Lysosomal Cargo Clearance and Calpain Activation,” Hegde et al use the Phoenix MICRON™ IV Slit Lamp to examine the effect of knocking out a lens structural protein. α, β and γ crystallins are lens structural proteins that are needed for transparency and refractive power


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,
