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 x 768-pixel resolution, 4.65 x 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
1/3-in. CCDs, whose co-site sampling arrangement eliminates red-green-blue shift.
