MELVILLE, NY, November 17-Manufacture of optical and digital imaging technology Nikon Instruments Inc. and hyperspectral imaging systems manufacturer ChromoDynamics Inc. have announced a valued-added reseller agreement enabling Nikon to deliver ChromoDynamics' HSi-300 system, providing widefield hyperspectral imaging technology to its customers. The partnership, in addition to Nikon's confocal spectral imaging products, brings a spectral imaging solution to widefield microscopy using Nikon's Eclipse 90i and Ti series of microscopes.

Paired with Nikon's NIS-Elements software platform, the HSi-300 effectively addresses removal of auto-fluorescence, distinguishes and separates probes with similar emission characteristics, and can be used for brightfield hyperspectral detection techniques in histology and pathology clinical specimens. The new combined platform also will permit easier, more accurate morphological and molecular component differentiation for biological research. Techniques using fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) and preparations using quantum dots (Q-dots) can be rapidly separated and quantified without the use of motorized emission-side filter wheels.

"This partnership with ChromoDynamics creates a valuable offering for our customers and fulfills a critical scientific need," says Stan Schwartz, vice president, Nikon Instruments Inc. "Our customers now have the ability to perform hyperspectral imaging experiments, often limited to confocal applications, with a variety of widefield techniques, including brightfield immunohistochemistry and fluorescence observations modes."
