High Efficiency in vivo Imaging now available on your benchtop

Advanced Molecular Imaging
The SPECTRAL Ami HT and Ami HTX acquire
quantitative images from a diverse set of
applications including well plates, plants and
small animals. The imaging system contains
a high performance cooled CCD camera to
record the image collected by a large aperture
lens with automation for filter and field of
view selection. Luminescence, fluorescence,
and x-ray modalities are combined into the
system utilizing the latest technologies.

Spectral Instruments Imaging software fully
integrates the high performance camera and
lighting system in the SPECTRAL line of products
to give you the shortest path from experiment
to conclusion. The software automates the
multiple steps necessary to attain calibrated
quantitative images so the experiment at
hand receives the highest priority of the users
attention, not the instrument. Intuitive controls
and an integrated file browser allow rapid
analysis and presentation of the optical and
x-ray data collected.
