The Scientist, a leading scientific magazine covering the life sciences, ranked Photometrics’ Evolve “Intelligent” EMCCD camera fourth among the publication’s “Top 10 Innovations of 2009.
(PRWEB) December 2, 2009 -- The Evolve™ EMCCD camera from Photometrics®, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance CCD and EMCCD cameras for the life sciences, was ranked fourth among The Scientist’s “Top 10 Innovations of 2009.”
The Evolve camera could impact imaging experiments in such a way so as to “force all cameras to follow” suit, according to H. Steven Wiley, one of The Scientist’s judges and lead biologist at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
The Evolve camera makes imaging data quantifiable and reproducible by using the photoelectron to scientifically quantify pixels in an image.
“Just think of the scientific advances we could make if studies were more quantitative and verifiable. And consider the new insights we could derive from being able to integrate data from different experiments,” wrote Dr. Jean Y.J. Wang, one of The Scientist’s judges and Chair of the Biomedical Science Graduate Program at the University of California, San Diego.
Before the Evolve, scientific-grade CCD and EMCCD cameras provided data in arbitrary imaging units, which derive from gain settings that vary between cameras and over time. Standardizing those arbitrary units between experiments r
