Nikon Instruments Partners With ChromoDynamics To Bring Hyperspectral Imaging to Widefield Microscopy

| November 17, 2008
There is no doubt that hyperspectral imaging technologies will play a role in diagnostic surgical pathology for the reasons I already discussed and recently blogged about (see: Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2009).  Nikon has recently entered the market with this recent press release:
"Nikon Instruments, Inc. ( and ChromoDynamics, Inc. ( have announced a valued-added reseller agreement enabling Nikon to deliver ChromoDynamics' new HSi-300 system, providing high-performance, widefield hyperspectral imaging technology, to its users. The partnership, in addition to Nikon's confocal spectral imaging products, brings an affordable and fast spectral imaging solution to widefield microscopy utilizing 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 will also permit easier, more accurate morphological and molecular component differentiation for biological research. Techniques utilizing 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."
