College Installs High-End Digital Imaging Equipment
Franklin & Marshall College, a small liberal arts school in Lancaster, Pa., has installed $130,000 worth of digital imaging equipment in one of its biology labs, in an effort to keep pace with the country's pre-eminent research universities.
Undergraduates now will have access to Nikon E-400 compound microscopes, Sony XC-77 monochrome video cameras and Scion LG-3 frame grabbers.
Dick Fluke and Kathleen Triman, professors of biology at the college, were instrumental in securing the grants from the National Science Foundation's laboratory improvement program. Fluke said such digital image processing equipment is typically found at large, research-oriented universities.
