Lumenera and BioBus Partnership
Lumenera is a proud partner of BioBus, a mobile microscope laboratory aimed at giving students the opportunity for hands-on scientific exploration.
In partnership with BioBus, Lumenera has donated seven of their research-grade microscopy cameras to be used on the bus. The cameras will equip the microscopes on the BioBus and allow students to capture their experiments and discoveries utilizing high performance cameras that can be found in professional laboratories. Read about the donation here.
BioBus and Lumenera's cameras were featured in a "NBC Nightly News" segment. Click the image on the right to view.
Student "Cell-fie" Image Contest 2015/2016
As part of this partnership, 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.

This seemingly harmless larvae captured under BioBus microscopes will soon grow into summer's most hated pest- the mosquito!
