This the second time in a row that the company has received the mark, a recognition of remarkable achievements made by universities and companies in scientific research and innovation. Mikrotron’s high-speed recording cameras and machine vision cameras are used for production, research and development. One recent application has sped up the fight against cancer by combining a Mikrotron high-speed camera with a microscope with 400x magnification. A precise characterization of all blood cell types and identification of any mestasizing cells can now be ready in 15 minutes. The new analytical procedure, developed by scientists at Dresden University of Technology and known as Real-Time Deformability Cytometry, is expected to open up new areas of research. “It is a great honor to have the value of our technologies recognized by the Stifterverband in this way,” said Christian Pilzer, CEO of Mikrotron. “High-speed cameras are playing an increasingly important role in industrial and scientific applications and, through our market-leading capabilities in research and innovation, Mikrotron is proud to be at the forefront of progress.” Mikrotron provides a full range of high-speed imaging solutions for challenging industry, engineering, science and sports applications.
