Creative use of the Phoenix MICRON® system to study corneal wound healing

Hampel et al use the Phoenix MICRON®  III imaging platform  in an unusual manner in their paper “Relaxin 2 is functional at the ocular surface and promotes corneal wound healing by visualizing enucleated corneas.” The Phoenix MICRON® is designed to take crisp images and videos of the rodent retina, but this article demonstrates the other


Phoenix’s anterior chamber OCT evaluates corneal wound healing in guinea pigs

McDaniels et al at the US Army Institute of Surgical Research used the Phoenix anterior chamber OCT to evaluate the safety of an ocular wound chamber after a corneal injury in guinea pigs. The research group developed an ocular wound chamber that encases the eye and allows for controlled delivery of therapeutics and eye lubricant.
