Nanosystems institute at UCLA, Photron to collaborate on specialized instrumentation

The California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has announced a collaboration with Photron USA Inc., a manufacturer of high-speed imaging systems and image analysis software, to develop specialized instrumentation for the CNSI's core laboratory facilities.

Photron, an international photo-instrumentation company that provides photo-optics and electronic technologies to the research community, is committed to furthering scientific research and development through the use of their high-speed motion analysis cameras.

The company has donated three state-of-the-art cameras for use in the CNSI's Advanced Light Microscopy/Spectroscopy (ALMS) core lab. The ALMS lab, one of eight core labs at the CNSI, focuses on optical imaging and advanced image analysis techniques for the study of macromolecules, cellular dynamics and the nanoscale characterization of biomaterials, including single-cell study and single-cell detection.

"CNSI is committed to collaborations with industry," said Paul S. Weiss, CNSI director and UCLA's Fred Kavli Chair in Nanosystems Sciences. "The high-speed cameras donated by Photron will greatly aid our investigators in the ALMS core lab as they develop new methods of molecular imaging."

"Photron is delighted to collaborate with the CNSI at UCLA," said Tak Takimizu, president of Photron USA. "The researchers using the core facilities there are clearly poised to lead the development of many important innovations and technologies."
