Horiba Scientific wins award for Verde Hyperspectral camera
3 July 2012 17:09 in Scientific Company News
Horiba Scientific's Verde Hyperspectral camera has been recognised as one of the 100 most technologically significant products launched in the past year by the editors of R&D Magazine.
The device has been selected by the publication - in association with an expert judging panel - as a winner at the 50th annual R&D 100 Awards, recognised as a benchmark of excellence across various industry sectors.
It is the first hyperspectral camera designed to measure a complete hyperspectral image set simultaneously, capturing data in as little as three milliseconds.
Using a patented 2D dispersion element to capture all spatial and spectral information in a single image, it can avoid the need for averaged or repeated experiments, even when dealing with samples such as live organisms.
Dr Sal Atzeni, vice-president and chief technology officer, said: "Verde is an excellent example in which our work ... resulted in a unique product that enables our customers to capture transient phenomena as hyperspectral data in a way never before possible."
This comes after the company's Horiba Medical division recently announced the European and UK launch of its new Microsemi CRP haematology analyser, following on from a successful Japanese debut.
