Hamamatsu received patent rights for "Lightsheet Readout Mode" technology, which provides optimal imaging with light sheet microscopes.

  • HAMAMATSU Photonics K.K. System Division Sales Promotion Department

Hamamatsu, as a leading company of cameras in life science fields, develops, manufactures, and sells sCMOS/qCMOS cameras. We developed the “Lightsheet Readout Mode” for providing an optimal imaging by utilizing a rolling shutter function, which is characterized in sCMOS/qCMOS cameras, applying our knowledge and experience accumulated through the development and sales of cameras. This developed technology has been patented in various countries, such as the USA , UK, Germany, Japan and China (see the patent list below). These patents include technologies to easily acquire high S/N pictures unaffected by scattered light with a method of setting a value for line scan speed (rolling shutter speed) referring to or synchronizing with a pre-selected scanning speed of the illumination light. By using these patents of ours, our sCMOS/qCMOS cameras are able to achieve the requirements of our customers even closer.

We appreciate your understanding of our patents and products, and hope to receive your continued patronage in the future. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
