Caliber Imaging & Diagnostics Introduces VivaScope® 1500 Multilaser System
Newest VivaScope(R) Device Provides Imaging Capabilities at Three Specific Wavelengths to Analyze Living Skin
ROCHESTER, N.Y. and BOSTON -- Caliber Imaging & Diagnostics (Caliber I.D.), formerly Lucid, Inc. (LCDX), has introduced the VivaScope(R) 1500 Multilaser system, the newest device in the company's VivaScope confocal microscope product line. VivaScope Multilaser cellular imaging devices give researchers the option of a painless, noninvasive optical skin biopsy to study changes at the cellular level.
The new VivaScope 1500 Multilaser systems include three lasers of different wavelengths that can be used in fluorescence-mode imaging to enhance image contrast when combined with dyes that are FDA-approved for human use. The system is well suited for a wide variety of skin research applications for the evaluation of personal care products, pharmaceuticals and in animal research. With the VivaScope 1500 Multilaser system, changes in living skin are viewed at the cellular level, and because the imaging is completely noninvasive, cellular changes can be monitored over time without damage to the tissue.
L. Michael Hone, Chief Executive Officer of Caliber I.D., said, "The VivaScope 1500 Multilaser system gives researchers a powerful new tool for performing cellular level analysis painlessly and noninvasively. The inclusion of lasers at three different wavelengths within a single system offers an unprecedented level of flexibility to researchers studying a variety of products, drugs and diseases. We believe this is an extremely important addition to our existing range of VivaScope devices."
