PRESS RELEASE

LUMENERA INTRODUCES 1.4 MEGAPIXEL ULTRA SENSITIVE CCD MICROSCOPY CAMERA

Ultra-high resolution and low light performance for medical, scientific and life science applications

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada - February 2, 2009 - Lumenera Corporation, www.lumenera.com, a
leading manufacturer and developer of high performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions for scientific, industrial, and surveillance markets, is pleased to announce the release of a new ultra sensitive high color fidelity CCD scientific camera. This newest USB 2.0 offering from the popular INFINITY family of microscopy cameras is an ideal solution for low light applications such as fluorescence, and where precise color reproduction is needed.

The INFINITY3-1U offers large 6.45ux6.45u pixels in a 2/3" format with a maximum resolution of 1392x1040. It employs the Sony ICX285 1.4 megapixel CCD sensor - the market leader for
fluorescence and other challenging low light applications. In addition, the cameras near-perfect color rendition makes it an excellent addition to any clinical laboratory. Suitable for both fluorescent and brightfield imaging, this camera offers an excellent price-to-performance ratio.

The camera's adaptability to vary resolution and frame rate requirements, combined with low noise performance and 8 or 12-bit pixel data mode, make the INFINITY3-1U an ideal camera for both live and fixed cell imaging. Live video preview allows for real-time focus; while auto exposure and auto/manual white balance efficiently capture your optimal image.
