Toshiba Announces Custom Camera Software Advances Real-Time, Retinal Imaging Research

New software permits more sensitive fluorescence detection in live retinal imaging

Toshiba Imaging Systems Division cameras. toshiba.com), the global leader in high definition (HD) camera technology for life sciences, microscopy, defense, industrial, and broadcast applications, announces a customized software interface for Toshiba’s IK-TF7 3-chip color cameras that enhances fluorescence imaging in living retinal tissue. The custom release of Streampix 5 software by Norpix, Inc. (www.norpix.com/ Montreal, Quebec) for Phoenix Research Laboratories, Inc. (www.phoenixreslabs.com/ Pleasanton, CA) features a built-in, long-integration button with a frame-time-selection window that enhances live animal retinal imaging studies. The recently designed software has been successfully used with Toshiba’s 3CCD cameras by Phoenix Research to capture imagery from the retinas of mice and rats, performing highly sensitive, in-vivo microscopy eye research.

“After a year in development, Norpix’s Streampix 5 software package was a welcome and instant success in our labs,” notes Greg Sprehn of Phoenix Research Laboratories. “Using Toshiba Imaging’s IK-TF7 3-chip cameras with long integration time and low dark noise, the new software (with a corresponding built-in long integration button) allows us to collect photons for several seconds or longer while imaging even fainter fluorescence in living retinal tissue. This exciting new capability will advance retinal regeneration studies that lead to restoring vision in humans, and finding ways to prevent blindness.”

Streampix 5 makes it possible to view, control and acquire imagery from single or multiple cameras simultaneously, all in the same user interface. A complete management console for the cameras simplifies the setup, control and acquisition from any number of cameras. In this application, the new commercial software interface combines with Phoenix Research Lab’s Micron III, an advanced retinal imaging system that integrates Toshiba’s IK-TF7 3-chip cameras with synchro-scan mode. The new, highly sensitive imaging system for biology will permit more precision in cell location and promote safer experiments in the lab.
