Toshiba Imaging Systems Div. has announced a customized software interface for its 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 window for frame time selection that enhances live-animal retinal imaging studies. The recently designed software has been successfully used with Toshiba’s three-CCD cameras by Phoenix Research to capture imagery from the retinas of mice and rats – highly sensitive in vivo microscopy research. Using Toshiba’s IK-TF7 three-chip cameras with long integration time and low dark noise, the new software enables collection of photons for several seconds or longer while imaging even fainter fluorescence in living retinal tissue.
