Photometrics Webinar Spotlights New Generation Of Image Sensors And Signal Processing

Features how to apply new imaging innovations to bioimaging applications and the trade-offs with each detection technology

Sponsored by Photometrics and hosted by LabRoots, an upcoming webinar will focus on the progress in life science research and how it has benefited from—and spurred—new developments in image sensors. Slated for June 14, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. PST and 11:00 a.m. EST, the presenter, Rachit Mohindra, product manager, life science research cameras for Photometrics, will demonstrate how recent advances in image sensor performance and signal processing have converged to create innovations in live-cell fluorescence microscopy. An example is Scientific CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) cameras, which avoid traditional sensor trade-offs between frame rate, field-of-view and sensitivity.

This new, educational webinar, “More than data: A new generation of image sensors and signal processing,” addresses how to apply the newest camera innovations to bioimaging applications, and the trade-offs with each detection technology. Several examples will be presented to demonstrate how to prepare for the future when selecting an appropriate camera for various fluorescence microscopy methods. Continuing education credits will be offered through the LabRoots PACE system.

Discoveries in computational imaging and signal processing are redefining how scientific cameras are transforming from the role of image capture devices into role-players in the selection and processing of valuable data. Also presented is how this may be realized, including application in localization-based, super-resolution microscopy, and improving signal-to-noise ratios with very low light imaging typical of live-cell microscopy. Attendees will be equipped to make the best camera selection for their application, learn how on-camera signal processing can benefit research, and be updated on recent improvements impacting scientific imaging.

Rachit Mohindra, has been closely involved with the EMCCD revolution that was instrumental in the development of new methods in single molecule detection and super-resolution microscopy. His experience in managing the design intricacies of CCD, CMOS and EMCCD cameras arms him with a unique perspective on emerging light detection technologies and their expected impact on life science microscopy.

Full details about the event, obtaining continuing education credits and webinar registration information is available on the LabRoots website.
