In Vivo Imaging Definition and Benefits

Seeing More Matters to Researchers

In vivo

Studies in which research is conducted on whole, living organisms, be it animals, humans or plants.

In Vivo Imaging

  • Provides unique insights into complex biological processes
  • Often replaces more rudimentary and less accurate techniques, such as measuring tumor volume with calipers
    • Advanced technologies more accurately determine volume and location
  • Essential bridge between in vitro data and clinical translation
  • Facilitates translational drug development

Imaging technologies such as our Vevo 3100 (ultra high-frequency ultrasound) and Vevo LAZR-X (photoacoustic imaging) allow researchers to acquire high-resolution images and robust anatomical, functional and molecular data, helping advance biomedical  research.

Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement

Non-invasive, in vivo imaging supports longitudinally studies in order to reduce overall animal usage.

Advancements in imaging technology and software are helping researchers around the world expand their research further than ever before!
