Photron, a global high-speed imaging systems and image analysis software manufacturer, has been named an industry partner by the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). A signing ceremony took place during the CNSI Core Lab Open House event at UCLA on 15 October. 

The California NanoSystems Institute is a research centre that encourages multidisciplinary collaborations for discoveries in nanoscience (the study of phenomena at the nanoscale) and nanotechnology (for the practical applications of nanoscale research). Photron, as an industry partner, has donated several high-speed imaging systems for use in the Advanced Light Microscopy/Spectroscopy (ALMS) core lab at CNSI. The slow motion cameras and proprietary image analysis software will aid research on optical imaging, single-cell study, and single-cell detection.

'High-speed imaging and motion analysis play a critical role in our research as we strive to develop new methods of molecular imaging,' said Professor Shimon Weiss, faculty director of the ALMS core lab at CNSI. 'We are very grateful to Photron and Tak Takimizu, president, Photron, USA, for their generous donation of high-speed cameras and slow motion camera systems.'
