NIR-I & NIR-II In vivo 3D Optoacoustic Imaging System
The LOIS-3D system can achieve NIR-I & NIR-II optoacoustic imaging effects because its excitation wavelength can reach 660-2300 nm. It can perform 2D and 3D imaging of the biological characteristics of living animals and obtain qualitative and quantitative data, providing more accurate diagnostic analysis for drug targeted therapy, early tumor screening, cardiovascular disease and brain disease monitoring and other research.

LOIS-3D system imaging mode
The model of LOIS-3D / LOIS-3D Plus produced by TomoWave Laboratories is the whole body 3D optoacoustic imaging system specially designed for living animals in the NIR-I & NIR-II
- Small animal is fixed on a special holder, driven by a precision rotating motor to complete a 360° rotation
- 4 short pulse lasers (two orthogonal and two oblique) are emitted by laser lasers
- The tissue absorbs light energy to generate an ultrasonic signal, which is received by a professionally designed 120° arc transducer
- Collect signals at 360° and adopt unit conversion through DAQ data, dedicated 3D reconstruction software reconstructs optoacoustic images

TomoWave has been highly recognized by users since the introduction of the LOIS-3D NIR-I & NIR-II In vivo 3D Optoacoustic Imaging System. So far, it has been installed in the MD Anderson Cancer Research Center, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Houston, Qingdao University, Guangxi University and so on. We have cooperated with many scientific research teams such as Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Sun Yat-sen University, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Soochow University, South China Normal University, Huazhong Agricultural University, Nanjing University of Technology, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, etc. The in vivo optoacoustic imaging characterization of the study was tested on the LOIS-3D NIR-I & NIR-II whole-body 3D optoacoustic imaging system for small animals.
NIR-I,non-photosensitive polymer nanovesicles for tumor therapy
Angew.Chem.Int.Ed. reported on a non-photosensitive material under the irradiation of pulsed laser to produce highly reactive substances, for cancer diagnosis and treatment. The fluorescence/optoacoustic dual-mode imaging of TomoWave's 3D optical system provides precise guidance for in-vivo pulsed laser therapy.Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 60,（2021）,4720-4731Non-photosensitive polymer nanosicles (NO-NCPs) have the effect of optoacoustic cavitation to enhance ROS, and can accelerate the release of NO in acid lysosomes, thus providing highly reactive peroxide nitrite ONOO-, which promotes mitochondrial damage and DNA fragmentation of cancer cells, and thus apoptosis.

NIR-II, Photothermal and Acoustic Dynamic Synergy Therapy
Biomaterials reported a collaborative treatment method in NIR-II photothermal irradiation and ultrasound. Ir-B-TiO2@CCM realizes the tracking of the circulation of nanoparticles in the body under the mediation of multi-modal imaging, thereby monitoring the temperature change of the tumor during the treatment, and finally effectively inhibiting the tumor in the mouse animal model experiment metastasis and recurrence.The characteristics of homologous targeting and immune escape of cancer cell membrane promote the selective accumulation of Ir-B-TiO2@CCM to homologous tumor cells and avoid immune rejection of macrophages at the same time, so as to improve tumor accumulation and treatment safety; The results in vivo and in vitro showed that the synergistic treatment of PTT and SDT had more superior tumor inhibition.Biomaterials 275, (2021), 120979
