This kit is a great solution to collect performance benchmarking data of your fluorescence imaging system. It is designed to mimic ICG fluorescence in the presence of tissue optical properties. The concentration sensitivity target provides a method to determine an imaging system’s range of linearity as well as an estimate for the noise floor and saturation point. The depth sensitivity target contains 1uM ICG-equivalent material at depths of 0.5-6mm under non-fluorescent tissue-mimicking material, which simulates in vivo imaging environments. The fluorescence resolution target uses a negative USAF1951 test target and 1uM ICG-equivalent material to provide an estimate of the imaging system’s optimal resolution to determine the resolvable feature size in fluorescence mode.
The test targets in this set can be analyzed using our web portal at FGS.QUELimaging.com. We are currently enrolling Beta testers for this site. A brief overview of the current features are available in the video below. The aim of this service is to provide system developers and researchers a reliable, repeatable and time-efficient method to analyze fluorescence images of these reference targets.
