NiraWave C is formulated from the clinically proven indocyanine green (ICG) agent for use in small animal imaging. It is a versatile dye that has been used for angiography of the eye, organ perfusion, rheumatology diagnostics, and photodynamic therapy research.

NiraWave C, the trusted standard from clinical practice:

  • Saves you the time by eliminating tedious dilution and formulation steps
  • Provides consistently reliable results
  • Serves as a reference contrast agent
  • Is hassle-free allowing you to focus on the experiment at hand
  • Nira Wave C is Viscover’s tried and tested indocyanine green for optical imaging in animals
  • Indocyanine green has been clinically used for various applications: angiography in opthalmology, organ perfusion, as well as rheumatology diagnostics based on vascular leakage
