Abstract
The continuously expanding number of fluorescent probes developed for molecular imaging in vivo requires new instruments, more flexible and with higher quantification power. Responding to those requirements we propose a new instrument: it combines the sensitivity of time correlated single photon detection with the extended spectral coverage of a pulsed supercontinuum laser in a sensitive and flexible time-domain platform for in vivo molecular imaging in small animals. The performance of the system is demonstrated on a case study, using NEO-STEM-PMSR50- PEG fluorescent silica nanoprobes and sequential imaging of CD-1 nude mice.
