Longitudinal In Vivo Imaging of Cellular-level Dynamic Phenotype Changes Inside the Living Body
  • • IVIM Technology’s contract R&D service provides high-quality repetitive observations using imaging chambers.
  • • Repetitive intravital imaging of cellular-level dynamics & tissue remodeling inside the living body in vivo will provide you a new insight in the processes of human disease development.
