NiraWave nano 780 is a nanoparticulate optical imaging agent for the visualization of vascular fine structure as well as angiogenic processes in tumors and inflammation. It provides a broad excitation range, a high quantum yield and best possible tissue penetration due to fluorescence in the near-infrared range.
NiraWave nano 780, the nanoparticle optical imaging agent:
- Exhibits a high Stokes-shift and high resistance towards bleaching
- Is optimized for an extended circulation time
- Enables a wide imaging time window
- Viscover's leading agent for optical angiography
- Visualize the vascular fine structure
- Study angiogenesis in tumors and inflammation
below 740 nm
