Hyperspectral imaging is the method of choice for identifying the presence of materials and biologicals based on their unique 'spectral signature'. The Cytoviva Hyperspectral Imaging System (HSI) from Scitech provides spectral analysis of materials and biologicals imaged with the CytoViva Nano-scale Optical Microscope.

Operating in the visible near infrared (VNIR) range, this system captures and records the spectrum within each pixel of the field of view, enabling spectral analysis of a selected region or single pixel within the sample. It supports both non-fluorescent and fluorescently labelled components in live cells and nano-materials.

In each application, the CytoViva Nano-scale Microscope and Hyperspectral Imaging Systems work together as a seamless solution to provide analytical confirmation of nano-scale materials and their interactions with biologicals or other composite materials.

Applications for Cytoviva HSI include:

  • Research of nano-particles used as targeted drug delivery vehicles for treating cancer. Scientists can observe these nano-particles as they are absorbed by cancer cells and quantitatively confirm this process through identification of the particle's unique spectral signature;
  • Nano-toxicology (measuring the presence of nano-materials in cells and tissues);
  • Nano-materials analysis (confirmation of different elements within composites and coatings on materials);
  • Identification of pathogens and other biological agents;
  • Fluorophore confirmation.
