Thermal Imaging Solutions Supported with the Use of Lumenera’s INFINITY Line Microscopy Cameras

METTLER TOLEDO provides instruments for use in research, scientific and quality control laboratories as well as in industries such as food, cosmetics, chemical, and pharmaceutical. The instrument manufacturer uses Lumenera's INFINITY line of microscopy cameras for its thermal microscopy.

The recent developments in digital imaging and PC technology have provided several benefits to thermal microscopy. To exploit these developments, METTLER TOLEDO took advantage of the capabilities of the INFINITY family of products.

Selection Criteria

METTLER TOLEDO selected Lumenera's INFINITY1-5C microscopy digital camera (Figure 1) for its thermal microscopy to meet the following requirements:

Seamless Camera Integration

METTLER TOLEDO was seeking a digital camera capable of rapidly and easily integrating with a specialized software package called Studio Capture. Lumenera's powerful camera drivers and quality technical support made this requirement possible.

Variable Resolution Capability

METTLER TOLEDO realized the suitability of the INFINITY7-5C camera line for image capture and analytical measurements, as it is possible to set the camera's variable resolution capability appropriately for capturing megapixel resolution still images as well as for video files.

Real-Time Image Preview

When a sample is heated or cooled, thermal microscopy can detect the temperature changes in real time. Lumenera's INFINITY cameras add the capability to record the changes for both hot and cold images and video files for subsequent analysis and interpretation. This capability has been widely integrated into the pharmaceutical sciences to identify different structures of the same chemical substance known as polymorphs. The different physical characteristics exhibited by these polymorphs need to be detected and classified for patent data.

Ability to Record Light Intensity Changes

The recent developments in thermal microscopy, such as the ability to analyze the changes in the light intensity during the phase transition of samples, enable display of complete measurement in a graphical format. The detection of changes in light intensity is also the key aspect of the new Sample Controlled Hot Stage Microscopy technique, which involves automatic adjustment of the heating or cooling rate during the measurement.

Conclusion

METTLER TOLEDO is able to meet all of its challenging thermal microscopy requirements using the INFINITY 1-5C microscopy digital camera.
