STUDENT PHOTO CONTEST

ANNOUNCING THE LUMENERA-BIOBUS STUDENT "CELL-FIE" PHOTO CONTEST WINNER

At the start of the September 2015 school year, Lumenera donated seven of their high-performance, research grade INFINITY microscopy cameras to the BioBus, a mobile microscope laboratory based in New York City that gives students the opportunity for hands-on scientific exploration and aims to provide children with access to modern science curricula and inspire disadvantaged youth to pursue careers in science.

As part of this initiative, Lumenera and BioBus held the "Student Cell-fie Image Contest," where the best image taken all school year wins its class the Grand Prize of a $500 back-to-school supply shopping spree and a microscope to benefit the entire class.

After choosing the top five best images submitted and opening up the final decision to the public in the form of an online poll, Lumenera and BioBus awarded the Grand Prize to the students at P.S. 196 in Bronx, New York for their close-up photo of a wasp.

FEATURED WHITE PAPER

DIGITAL PATHOLOGY: A PRIMER FOR MICROSCOPY CAMERA SELECTION

INFINITY3SMost pathologists today use digital systems within their practices and research projects to communicate, store data, and analyze images. Whether it's within clinical, forensic, surgical, or other branches of pathology, communication and consultation among specialists is greatly improved by the use of digital systems and enables faster diagnosis for patients.

Selecting the proper imaging equipment is one of the most important elements a pathologist needs to take into consideration when using a digital system. To produce a high quality pathology image, one must have a digital camera that can dependably and accurately reproduce what a pathologist sees in the eye piece of their microscope. Excellent color, high dynamic range and high resolution are the key elements that comprise a high quality pathology image. It is also important that pathologists can detect features in dark areas (which means the camera must have high sensitivity), that the camera doesn't add unwanted artifacts to the image (has low noise), and can be easily connected to a computer (via a USB interface, for example).

This paper reviews the fundamentals of imaging within the field of pathology and what should be taken into consideration when selecting a digital microscopy camera.

FEATURED WEBINAR

COLOR IMAGE QUALITY CONTROL IN MICROSCOPY

Lumenera recently sponsored the Bitesize Bio Webinar: "Color Image Quality Control in Microscopy"

BiteSizeBio LogoOverview: Mark Clymer, an expert in microscopy imaging, will guide you through the complicated area of color reproduction in microscopy. He will offer advice and tips on how to get the most from your microscopy camera.

Color imaging is everywhere today and is often taken for granted. Images are instantly captured on cell phones, tablets, web cams, and microscopes. Pictures are shared with friends and colleagues even faster. We thrive on instant gratification. For some of us, our images are simply a snapshot in time- a selfie in front of a landmark, an amazing meal presentation, a pic showing viable cells in culture. But for others, images need to be masterpieces, expressing not just artistry but scientific discovery.

Regardless of your philosophy, we are at the mercy of the technology: cameras AND software. So as scientists, how do we ensure that we capture and communicate images that are worthy of our research? In this webinar, you'll learn about how color in images goes awry, and what you can do about it. And there's a twist at the end about an often overlooked villain in this whole scheme.

"SELECTING THE RIGHT COUPLER FOR YOUR MICROSCOPE CAMERA"

Bayer patternSelecting a suitable coupler to connect a camera to a microscope is an important step in the instrument's configuration. Another term for a coupler is a C-mount adapter, and the terms are often used interchangeably. When selecting a coupler, several factors must be considered in order to maximize the camera's field of view, without compromising image quality.
