Phoenix MICRON®

Ground-breaking eye and eye-brain research tools used at hundreds of sites in 25 countries, and backed by over 320 research papers.

Optimized for eye research using laboratory animals, both in computer simulations and in laboratory studies, Phoenix MICRON® delivers performance at the physical limits of optical systems to fuel scientific discovery.

Phoenix MICRON® is a versatile in vivo high-resolution retinal imaging and data platform

MICRON® IV Microscope

Image-guided OCT

Image-guided ERG

“Best rodent imaging system I’ve ever used. Produces exceptionally high quality digital fundus images of rodents and small animals. The resolution and contrast are much better than any other instrument we have tried. We have had good success with bright field, as well as fluorescence imaging of GFP expression in the retina and fluorescein angiography. The ability to capture video, select and output individual frames later is a big help when focusing on the retina in the small rodent eye.”
