Toshiba Imaging Systems Div. has announced a customized software interface for the company’s IK-TF7 three-chip color cameras that enhances fluorescence imaging in living retinal tissue. The release of Streampix 5 software by Norpix Inc. for Phoenix Research Laboratories Inc. features a built-in, long-integration button with a frame-time-selection window that enhances live-animal retinal imaging studies. The software has been used with Toshiba’s three-CCD cameras by Phoenix Research to capture imagery from the retinas of mice and rats, performing highly sensitive in vivo microscopy research. Using the IK-TF7 cameras with long integration time and low dark noise, the new software allows collection of photons for several seconds or longer while imaging even fainter fluorescence in living retinal tissue.
