Olympus Introduces Two Intravital Research Fluorescence Molecular Imaging Systems


CENTER VALLEY , PA, April 4, 2006 - Olympus, a leader in the development of microscope systems for live-cell and live-animal imaging, and the world's premier endoscopy company, is showing two new intravital research systems at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting in Washington DC.

The OV100 Intravital Observation System is a complete, closed-chamber system for high-sensitivity, high-speed imaging of mice and other small laboratory animals from micro to macro levels of observation. The optics for the OV100 fluorescence imaging system have been specially developed to offer ultra-high light gathering capacity, and feature a combination of high numerical apertures and long working distances.

The OV100 features a wide 114X to 1X magnification range for seamless imaging of the entire body down to the single cell level without disturbing the animal. High-resolution fluorescence imaging can be correlated with other techniques such as MRI, PET and CT scans. The OV100 is also suitable for long-duration time-lapse observations and supports a wide range of image processing functions and other post-imaging analysis techniques. The system's five parcentric, parfocal objectives are mounted on an automated turret and include a zoom lens with a magnification range of 1.6X to 16X.

The IV100 Intravital Laser Scanning Microscope has been optimized for collecting light from deep within tissue. Exceptionally high spatial, temporal and multi-wavelength resolution combined with novel far-red and near-IR imaging probes make it possible to image subcellular detail of internal organs and disease processes.

Relying on Olympus' high-precision engineering technology that has made the company the world's foremost provider of endoscopes, the instrument allows minimally invasive intravital research imaging. The system features ultra-slim MicroProbe lenses for high-resolution laser-scanned imaging of tissue and cells inside the body cavity of small laboratory mammals. Users can select from three MicroProbe lenses, including two of the world's slimmest objectives (each 1.3mm in diameter), along with the company's full line of regular microscope objectives. With a MicroProbe lens and the IV100's flexible observation angles, organs can be observed deep inside the body through minimally invasive keyhole surgery. A wide range of fluorochromes including those compatible with near-IR 748nm lasers is available for deeper, less damaging observations.

Olympus provides a full range of comprehensive approaches to macro-to-micro level imaging of living whole animals, organs, tissues and cells. In addition to the IV100 and OV100 systems, the company offers the MVX10, a fluorescence microscope that combines maximum detection sensitivity for macro-level imaging with a high-magnification zoom for viewing and recording fluorescence specimens at the cellular level.
Vision
Our values have always been developed with a focus on life. Our products reflect those values in their ability to save lives, to capture precious moments of life, and to make a better living possible for everyone.

Creating new values for customers and society is what we're about. At Olympus, we believe we can help create new values in the form of products and services that are kind to their users and to the environment.

Our growth stems from our ability to respond to local conditions and needs. We do more than provide products; we become a part of the communities in which we operate.

It all begins with the vision, and the vision begins with our desire, every day, to leave the world a better place than we find it—to improve, with what we do, the lives of our neighbors everywhere. That vision drives the way we work, and it drives our involvement in the communities in which we work.

We are part of a global company that is almost a century old, and we are as young, as eager and as vigorous as this new century before us. We have the experience and the resources to answer our dreams and yours. With technology and resolve—and with the critical vision that drives them—we are working to make a better world.
