Covance, INphoton partner for microscopy imaging services
Covance and INphoton have entered a collaborative relationship which will grant Covance exclusive global access to INphoton’s intravital microscopy imaging technology and expertise.

Intravital microscopy is a technique that provides quantitative, in vivo molecular imaging at subcellular resolution, resulting in a cost-effective approach to accelerate preclinical drug development, said Covance.

The multiphoton microscopy combined with novel surgical techniques and multiple fluorophores allow in vivo imaging at subcellular resolution, providing visibility of quantitative organ, cellular and subcellular distribution of potential therapeutic compounds as well as physiologic data, added the Princeton, N.J.-based Covance.
