IVIM Technology Inc. was founded based on the innovative technology of IntraVital Microscopy (IVM) developed by the Korea Advanced Institute of Technology (KAIST).
IntraVital Microscopy is a technique that enables you to directly observe the movement of live cells that make up living tissue in vivo. With this technique, it is possible to distinguish an individual cell among a large number of cells in various organs, which is not possible with conventional biomedical imaging technologies such as MRI or CT, and to track the movement of each cell in three dimensions in real-time.
It is also possible to simultaneously image living cells in living organs, surrounding microenvironments, and molecules such as proteins which is impossible with conventional tissue analysis technology. Furthermore, this enables us to analyze the in vivo efficacy of new biopharmaceuticals such as immunological, cell, gene, and antibody therapeutic agents acting in real living organisms at the cellular level which is the basic structural and functional unit of life.
We hope the world’s first All-in-One microscopy (IVM) platform developed by IVIM Technology explores the interactions among numerous cells inside the living organisms and will be the next generation high-tech imaging equipment to elucidate the complex processes of human diseases.
