QImaging shows off the EXi Aqua IEEE 1394b “Firewire” camera and QTube, its new, video-based imaging learning tool for at the Association of Cell Biology, booth 548.
At the exhibition, experienced QImaging representatives will demonstrate the EXi Aqua’s ability to deliver high resolution and sensitivity. Life science professionals and busy labs will appreciate this camera’s ability to perform a broad range of imaging applications--from quantitative color and immuno-fluorescence imaging to the capture of dim fluorescent protein data.
The newest of the EXi series, the EXi Aqua is a user-friendly, cost-effective tool well-suited to most bio-imaging applications. This camera is a laboratory workhorse, literally 2 cameras in one—a sensitive monochrome camera, and, when utilized with the optional RGB filter module, a high-resolution color camera. And the EXi Aqua is also available with a convenient Bayer mask color CCD option. In addition, the camera’s capabilities can be upgraded, should imaging requirements change over time.
QImaging’s new QTube is a video-based learning tool that provides scientists and researchers with practical information on many of the latest biological imaging applications, technologies and techniques.
Daily, scientists must focus on performing sophisticated biological research that includes a multitude of elaborate methodologies, protocols and procedures. In addition, they depend on a myriad of state-of-the-art laboratory technologies and techniques, the majority of which require some degree of technical familiarity and understanding. Consequently, researchers find that a great deal of their precious time gets diverted from their science to equipment manuals and learning curves.
QImaging’s QTube is part of a new movement in scientific publishing to provide real-time, practical assistance to those who need “quick and easy” access to life science digital imaging resources. Located on QImaging’s website at www.qimaging.com/qtube. QTube provides easy access to a multitude of imaging techniques and procedures. Initial topics include imaging techniques such as color overlay, installation and operating procedures for camera drivers and helpful procedures such as making live intensity measurements using multichannel products such as Photometrics’ Dual View imager.
