Researchers Around the World
Thousands of researchers around the world go to UVP for their bioImaging and research requirements in applications such as small animal imaging, Western blot, 1D/2D gel imaging, chemiluminescent imaging, colony counting and more. More than 15,000 UVP BioImaging Systems are placed world wide.

A notable research facility that uses a UVP BioImaging System, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, known as Fiocruz), is attached to the Brazilian Ministry of Health and is the most prominent science and technology health institution in Latin America. Today, the institution is responsible for a range of activities which include research development; highly-regarded hospital and ambulatory care services; production of vaccines, drugs, reagents, and diagnostic kits; education and training of human resources; information and communication in the area of health, science and technology; quality control of products and services, and the implementation of social programs.

Recently, a Fiocruz regional branches, Centro de Pesquisas Gonçalo Muniz (CPqGM), situated in Salvador, Brazil, acquired a UVP iBox Scientia system for their in vivo imaging experiments. CPqGM also intends to use the system for fluorescent and chemiluminescent gel and blot imaging. UVP offers its iBox in partnership with AntiCancer, Inc., a pioneer in fluorescent protein imaging in live animals and in the development of mouse models for cancer research. AntiCancer, Inc. is headquartered in San Diego, California and also maintains offices in Japan, China and Korea. UVP and AntiCancer provide a free one day hands-on training on the iBox using AntiCancer, Inc. mouse models.

Dr. Camila Indiani de Oliveira, a researcher at the Laboratory of Immunoparasitology (LIP), at CPqGM/Fiocruz traveled to AntiCancer San Diego to train on the iBox. Dr. Oliveira says, “My department handles a myriad of experiments and I was very excited to go to AntiCancer to get trained on in vivo mouse imaging. Having done mostly in vitro experiments on animals, I found it a little intimidating that we are now able to non-invasively detect fluorescent signals in a matter of seconds in living mice. After the UVP and AntiCancer staff showed me the simple process using Anticancer’s fluorescently labeled tumor mice, I was very impressed as well as excited to go back and teach my students of this exciting technology. I am positive that the iBox will contribute significantly to our research and discovery process.”
