Latest multi-spectral imaging system now available in the UK and Ireland.

Analytik has announced the availability of Videometer’s latest multi-spectral imaging system, the VideometerLab 3, for their customers in the UK and Ireland.

Analytik has announced the UK and Ireland release of the VideometerLab 3, an easy-to-use multispectral imaging and automated visual measurement system for fast and accurate determination of surface color, texture and dimensions of manufactured and natural products.

The innovative system offers higher illumination efficiency and improved UV signal-to-noise than its predecessors. The instrument integrates a high-resolution camera with advanced digital image analysis and statistics software.

The output is an accurate and objective measurement of visual quality in less than 10 seconds. Imaging examples can be seen on the VideometerLab 3 product pages.

Using strobed LED technology, the VideometerLab 3 combines measurements at up to 20 different wavelengths into a single multispectral image. Every pixel in the image is a spectrum and the system includes wavelengths outside the range detected by traditional RGB technology.

Studies have shown that VideometerLab 3 is as accurate as a test panel but with significantly higher repeatability and the removal of subjective judgement. Specific areas of special interest such as shape, size, color and texture can be studied automatically to provide fast, objective assessment for easy decision making.

The smart software can be taught to discriminate just the properties users are interested in, making it a versatile and adaptable solution to meet the demands of a modern food technology lab. One-click analysis ‘recipes’ make it accessible to novice users while the advanced suite of analysis tools will satisfy the most demanding power users.

Some applications examples of uses for the VideometerLab 3:
• Microbial culture identification
• Foreign matter contamination
• Color testing
• Hydration analysis
• Grain analysis and disease identification
• Quality grading
• Shelf-life studies
• Supply chain integrity
• Counterfeit detection

Women’s Immune System Genes Operate Differently from Men’s
A new technology reveals that immune system genes switch on and off differently in women and men, and the source of that variation is not primarily in the DNA.
DNA Damage Seen in Patients Undergoing CT Scanning
Along with the burgeoning use of advanced medical imaging tests over the past decade have come rising public health concerns about possible links between low-dose radiation and cancer.
Yeast Cells Use Signaling Pathway to Modify Their Genomes
Researchers at the Babraham Institute and Cambridge Systems Biology Centre, University of Cambridge have shown that yeast can modify their genomes to take advantage of an excess of calories in the environment and attain optimal growth.
New Material Forges the Way for 'Stem Cell Factories'
Researchers have discovered the first fully synthetic substrate with potential to grow billions of stem cells. The researchcould forge the way for the creation of 'stem cell factories' - the mass production of human embryonic (pluripotent) stem cells.
New Measurements Reveal Differences Between Stem Cells for Treating Retinal Degeneration
By growing two types of stem cells in a “3-D culture” and measuring their ability to produce retinal cells, a team lead by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital researchers has found one cell type to be better at producing retinal cells.
Researchers Identify Critical Genes Responsible for Brain Tumor Growth
After generating new brain tumor models scientists have identified the role of a family of genes underlying tumor growth in a wide spectrum of high grade brain tumors.
Growing Spinal Disc Tissue
Scientists develop new method for growing spinal disc tissue in the lab for combating chronic back pain.
A New Path Towards a Universal Flu Vaccine
New research suggests it may be possible to harness a previously unknown mechanism within the immune system to create more effective and efficient vaccines against this ever-mutating virus.
Potential New Class of Cancer Drugs
Scientists have found a way to stop cancer cell growth by targeting the Warburg Effect, a trait of cancer cell metabolism that scientists have been eager to exploit.
