CRi unveils new multispectral imaging system for brightfield and fluorescent-based microscopy

Cambridge Research And Instrumentation : 11 December, 2007  (New Product)
Cambridge Research & Instrumentation (CRi) has launched Nuance 2, a system that converts any brightfield or fluorescent microscope into a multispectral imaging workstation.
For multispectral imaging analysis of larger specimens, such as embryos, zebrafish, plants, tissue culture and microtiter plates, the Nuance 2 can be mounted onto a fluorescent macroscope. The Nuance 2 system will be showcased at the upcoming San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium from December 13 to 16, 2007 in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

The sleek Nuance 2 features new analytical software providing the user with enhanced spectral un-mixing tools and more efficient CCD cooling for better low-light imaging. Spectral library building is now easier, using the Real Component Analysis (RCA) algorithm to automatically identify spectral signatures and the new Compute Spectra feature to properly identify true spectral signatures when combined or overlapping. Nuance sensitivity has been improved allowing discrimination of co-localised markers, even when present in different amounts, and reports the relative amounts of each marker and the percentage of each co-localised marker within the sample.

At the heart of the Nuance 2 is the Flex liquid crystal tunable filter (LCTF) that provides fast, accurate spectral imaging from 420 to 720nm (VIS model) and 500 to 950nm (GNIR model), covering the full range of available chromogenic dyes and in vitro fluorophores.

'We are very excited about the Nuance 2 Multispectral Imaging System,' says James Mansfield, director of multispectral imaging systems at CRi. 'From its new industrial design, optimised optics and user-friendly software tools, this system was designed and developed with the customers' needs in mind. Along with our award winning Maestro In Vivo imaging systems, CRi offers a full spectrum of imaging solutions for our customers.'
