Spectral Instruments Imaging is the fusion of principal developers in in vivo imaging technology and a world class camera manufacturer. Working together to advance pre-clinical imaging to reveal complex biological processes.

What researchers are saying...

We were so pleased with the instrument’s performance and SII’s support within the very first year of use that we committed to a replacement of our entire suite of older instruments with SII products.

The LED based illumination meant that there was nearly a 90X more light incident on the surface of the specimen versus traditional white lights used by other manufacturers which translates to earlier detection – sometimes weeks ahead – saving researchers time and money. It also dramatically improved the utilization of the imaging core.

SII has a single-minded focus on building the best optical imaging instruments for bioluminescence and fluorescence. The entire company – management, engineers, sales team and support is aligned around that central focus.

This has meant many good things for us as a customer – where the innovation continues non-stop. We are already seeing many new features in software and hardware that leave us very optimistic about the future.
