IRVINE, Calif., March 17, 2010 – Toshiba Imaging Systems Div.’s IK-TF7 three-CCD progressive-scan color camera has been integrated into the Micron III retinal imaging microscope developed by Phoenix Research Labs.
The system enables new modalities in high-resolution imaging for in vivo eye research, including white-light imaging of mice and rats, fluorescein angiography, diabetic retinopathy, retinoblastoma, choroidal neovascularization, retinitis pigmentosa and anterior segment slit-lamp. Live-animal fluorescent studies such as green and yellow fluorescent protein are also possible.
Camera features include 1024 × 768-pixel resolution, 4.65 × 4.65-µm pixel size and color-shading. Proprietary prism block color technology captures fast-moving items under test. The compact camera operates at up to 90 fps and eliminates image jitter via the ?-in. CCDs, whose co-site sampling arrangement eliminates RGB shift.
Other features include partial scanning, a field removable/replaceable infrared filter, on-screen and RS-232C setup, asynchronous reset, long-term integration and shutter speeds from 1/100 to 1/100,000 s.
