PlantView100 In vivo Plant Imaging System


As the first imaging system designed specifically for plant living experiments in China, the launch of PlantView100 will provide a more professional, efficient and intelligent operation experience for plant living research!


1.Large field of view, dual camera
An oversized dark box combined with a wide-angle lens enables the maximum imaging area of PlantView100 to reach 28cm × 28cm, which can realize the imaging of multiple samples at one time. The unique dual-camera mode, in addition to the top main camera, is also equipped with a side camera, combined with a computer-controlled high-throughput rotating sample stage, which can achieve natural vertical growth imaging of rhizomes in multiple petri dishes.

2. Ultra-sensitive

The system uses a high-sensitivity, zero-defect, scientific-grade back-thin, back-sensing cold CCD camera with higher light quantum sensitivity and quantum conversion rate> 95%; the camera cooling temperature is as low as -100 ° C, and the camera noise is extremely low, Even long-term exposure can accept very weak signals; a fully closed anti-interference dark box can also effectively avoid the impact of external light sources and cosmic rays on the photo, further improving detection sensitivity.

3. Low background

The fluorescence imaging module is equipped with a 150W full-wavelength halogen lamp, a variety of freely combinable filters, an embedded ring global light source and a dual gimbal point light source, with top-level spectral conversion capabilities and fluorescence self-luminous interference deduction function. The earth improves the specificity and sensitivity of the fluorescence signal, and greatly shortens the exposure time, which fully meets the requirements of "low background" in fluorescence imaging experiments.

4. Multifunctional

PlantView100 is equipped with a plant illumination simulation module, which contains two LED illumination boards and a cold water circulation system. The light intensity and time of each spectrum of LED lights can be edited by software to simulate the spectrum and intensity of real sunlight. It can be used for plant growth rhythm and Photoperiod test. At the same time, a power socket and a flange interface are reserved in the instrument, which can quickly introduce various experimental conditions and experimental equipment, such as temperature, humidity, light and microscope, etc. The experimental methods are more diverse and the functions are more powerful.

5. Humanization
The user-friendly full Chinese software can automatically control the lifting and rotation of the sample stage of the instrument and the intensity of various light sources, preset a variety of imaging modes, one-click fast imaging, quantitative analysis functions, and comply with GLP original data and operating record requirements, and directly output experiments. Reports simplify instrument operation and save you time.

Plant gene expression and protein interaction studies, stress resistance studies, gene stress experiments, growth and rhythm monitoring, clonal screening, genetic breeding screening, chlorophyll monitoring, medicinal plant screening, and plant bacterial and viral infection research.

Study on Plant Gene Expression and Protein Interaction

Plant gene expression is regulated by factors such as temperature and light. PlantView100 can directly reflect the spatial and temporal distribution of plant gene expression, and thus understand biological processes such as the interaction of specific genes with receptors in the body and signal transduction pathways.

Plant biological rhythm and photoperiod related research

Biorhythm is an internal, complex and delicate physiological regulation system of organisms, which enables plants to coordinate their metabolism and various physiological processes according to the periodic changes of the external environment, so as to keep pace with the environment. By adjusting the plant light simulation module of PlantView100 to simulate the changing conditions of day and night light, the time for studying the expression of circadian rhythm-related genes and the regulation mechanism can be greatly shortened.

Chlorophyll monitoring

Qualitative and quantitative determination of chlorophyll in plants to estimate the growth status and distribution of plants can be used as indicators of plant and environmental quality assessment. PlantView100 is equipped with an excellent fluorescence imaging module. By monitoring the chlorophyll of plant leaves, early non-destructive detection of crop diseases and heavy metal pollution, such as damage to crops and environmental impact, can be implemented.
