FOBI is a device that can image and analyze fluorescent signals from tissues and organisms. Images of various fluorescent proteins and dyes are taken using 4 channels consisting of Blue, Green, Red, and NIR. Using an optimized light source, filter, and color camera for macro-imaging, FOBI can obtain intuitive and high quality images. This configuration clearly distinguishes between background and signal without further analysis and is also available through a live window.
NEOimage program providing with FOBI analyzes fluorescence images easily by removing a background image effectively which is the biggest obstacle for fluorescence imaging and caused by autofluorescence and reflected light. In addition, the uniform light intensity of LED light makes it possible to measure certain quantity values. FOBI has a simple design, is easy to use, fast and reliable.
Intuitive Color Data
FOBI uses color sensors and optimized filters for the fluorescence signal through a live window without any special analysis. The live window allows you to identify the position and intensity of the fluorescence intuitively, and to get image data as it shown.
FOBI has a fast frame rate capable of recording videos. Due to the fast video speed, many samples can be processed quickly and observed, responded instantly.

FOBI is structured as simple and optimal for quick and easy installation. It is also easy to move, manage, and maintain.
The FOBI has a compact size (26 x 26 x 40 cm), so it is ideal for small spaces. Due to its convenient size and portability, it can be used for a wide variety of applications.

Easy to Use
Hardware and software are user-friendly. Mounting filters, controlling exposures, and capturing images are all simple and easy to use.
It is possible to apply most fluorescence proteins and fluorescence materials from GFP to ICG by using four channels as Blue, Green, Red and NIR. Since more than one fluorescent substance can be imaged, various functions can be observed in one sample. For example, tumor and drug imaging can be performed in the same animal so that targeting and tumorization can be observed simultaneously. You can also merge bright images in order to localize the fluorescence within the animal.
