Imaging is an integral part of most operating room procedures and is used on a daily basis in the operating theater. Near real-time imaging during surgical procedures can significantly enhance the procedures by providing information about the anatomy and pathological conditions. So far, customizable spectral-imaging systems were only rarely investigated, developed and even less often installed in operational settings, especially microsurgery. In this paper we describe a design of portable imaging system for high throughput spectral characterization of ex vivo samples. The setup presented in this work was used for non-invasive collection of spectral signatures from a set of biological tissues.
