IVIS Lumina

IVIS Lumina

A Benchtop System for 2D Bioluminescence, Standard Fluorescence & Cerenkov Imaging

The IVIS ® Lumina Series brings together years of leading optical imaging technologies into one easy to use and exquisitely sensitive bench-top system. The IVIS Lumina is capable of imaging both fluorescent and bioluminescent reporters. The system is equipped with up to 26 filter sets that can be used to image reporters that emit from green to near-infrared. Superior spectral unmixing can be achieved by Lumina's optional high resolution short cut off filters.


  • Exquisite sensitivity in bioluminescence
  • Full fluorescence tunability through the NIR spectrum
  • Compute Pure Spectrum spectral unmixing for ultimate fluorescence sensitivity
  • Dedicated Gas Anesthesia System

In Vivo Imaging of Bioluminescent Salmonella Infection

In Vivo Imaging of a Bioluminescent Salmonella Infection – Researchers from the Smith Lab have developed in vivo models of infection using bioluminescent bacteria. These bacteria are engineered to emit light, thus facilitating their detection using a light sensitive CCD chip. BLI emission reports on the health of these invading cells, and drug therapy may be non-invasively monitored as a decrease in light emanating from infected tissue.


Multimodal Prostate Tumor Imaging

Multimodal Prostate Tumor Imaging – A collaboration between researchers from the Suckow Lab., Leevy Lab., and Dr. Brian Rabinovich from MD Andersen, has produced a prostate tumor cell line with dual bioluminescent and fluorescent genetic reporters From left to right is a sub-Q tumor with signal captured in photographic,mCherry fluorescence, exogenous MMPSense750 probe fluorescence, Cerenkov luminescence (FDG), and PET (FDG) modalities
