PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT

NOW AVAILABLE: INFINITY3S-1UR

Ultra-Sensitive Camera Ideal for Low-Light Imaging

INFINITY3S Lumenera's INFINITY3S-1UR is a high-speed, high sensitivity research-grade camera with a 1.4 megapixel resolution. The camera incorporates Sony's remarkable ICX825 CCD sensor, producing much higher dynamic range and sensitivity over the popular ICX285 sensor. Full resolution images can be sent to a host computer at an industry leading 60 fps through Lumenera's high-speed USB 3.0 data interface. The INFINITY3S-1UR has the light sensitivity needed for challenging low light applications such as fluorescence and NIR imaging. It is also supported by an industry-leading four-year warranty.

The Sony ICX825 CCD sensor produces a 53% improvement in sensitivity over the popular ICX285 sensor.

PICK OF THE PICS PHOTO CONTEST

INFINITY3S Lumenera is a proud partner of the University of Ottawa and Dr. Jon G. Houseman of the Biology Department. This partnership enables the biology students at the University to excel in their studies through access to state-of-the-art camera technology provided by Lumenera's INFINITY line of microscopy cameras.

For the last two years, we have compiled the photos taken by students in their Biology lab and picked the best image taken for the "Pick of the Pics" contest.

We are excited to announce that Leo Gitierrez and Michael Kalyn are the winners of the Pick of the Pic 2016 contest for their photo from the "Chelicerata and Crustacia" lab:

IN THE NEWS

NEW YORK TIMES: "An Artist Who Plays With Food, and a Microscope"

Artist who uses Lumenera's microscopy cameras is featured in the New York Times.

Excerpt: "Dr. Robert Rock Belliveau, 84, a retired pathologist, works in a darkened studio on the sun-baked outskirts of Las Vegas, where he spends hours squeezing plums and blueberries and other fruits through a garlic press. He photographs them under the polarizing light of a microscope, and the kaleidoscopic results never cease to amaze him. Otherworldly neon pink and blue crystals form in dried lime juice. Dr. Belliveau has discovered what looks like translucent bright-blue bundles of wheat in blueberry juice."

FEATURED SOLUTION SHEET

DIGITAL PATHOLOGY SOLUTION SHEET

Lumenera's scientific-grade cameras offer imaging solutions for growing digital pathology market

Bayer patternCentral to any digital pathology application is imaging. The captured images are used for documentation, archiving, teaching, publication, and in the case of telepathology, to provide realtime consultation. To avoid dire consequences for patients, digital cameras used in pathology applications must be, above all else, highly reliable. Consumer-type cameras consistently fail to meet expectations in this regard.

The set of performance features that need to be taken into consideration when selecting a camera for a digital pathology application are outlined in the solution sheet.

"FLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY- THE IMPORTANCE OF QUANTUM EFFICIENCY AND LOW NOISE"

Bayer patternFluorescence microscopy is a specialised branch of microscopy that allows the observer to tag different elements of a specimen with proteins that will fluoresce under various wavelengths of light. The emitted fluorescent light from the specimen can be quite faint and is sometimes very difficult to see. The camera used to image the low emission target needs to be highly sensitive in order to detect the fluorescing light. It should also have minimal noise to ensure accuracy above the noise floor and offer the highest signal-to-noise ratio possible.

"WHEN MONOCHROME CAMERAS ARE THE BEST SOLUTION"

Bayer patternMonochrome cameras can easily be overlooked when searching for an imaging solution since many new cameras boast vivid color, sharp contrast, and improved low light performance. There are many applications, however, that would benefit from using a monochrome camera as they produce sharper images with better resolution, output smaller file sizes, and are more sensitive to light.

SOFTWARE RELEASE

NEW SOFTWARE RELEASE: INFINITY ANALYZE & CAPTURE FOR WINDOWS AND MAC

INFINITY ANALYZE for Windows 6.5.4

Metamorph logoRelease 6.5.4 includes minor updates and revisions to both INFINITY ANALYZE and INFINITY CAPTURE. For INFINITY ANALYZE, the exposure slider in the Multispectral Capture Wizard has been converted to use a logarithmic scale, allowing fine adjustments at shorter exposure times. Additionally, the frame rate reporting for several newer camera models has been corrected, when the cameras were being used between 300ms and 500ms. For the INFINITY CAPTURE application, an issue with the exposure range on the INFINITY3S-1UR camera model has been corrected; while an image corruption issue impacting the INFINITY3-6UR camera model with the TWAIN implementation, has been corrected.

Learn more or download a copy of the software.

 

INFINITY ANALYZE for Mac 6.3.1

Metamorph logoSupport for OSX 10.9 through OSX 10.11 is now included. The INFINITY3S-1UR camera model device drivers are now included in the application framework, and a new exposure simulation mode has been added to the camera settings panel, enabling the preview of images under very low-light conditions, such as fluorescence imaging. While the live preview image exposure is being simulated, a captured image will use the actual specified exposure time.

While the live preview image exposure is being simulated, a captured image will use the actual specified exposure time. In addition, several issue shave been resolved with the INFINITY CAPTURE for Mac application, such as using the cameras 8-bit mode as the default configuration, rather than 16-bit. The preview quality mode and tap configuration settings are now restored from the setting used in the previous session. For the ImageJ plug-in, the exposure time simulation has been added, and the ability to capture 16-bit image data into ImageJ has been implemented.
