Dear Colleague,

We are sending you this message to bring you up-to-date regarding preparations for Photonex 2013 in Coventry.

IN THE NEWS: Announcement of the Nano and Bio-Imaging programme focusing on the latest advanced imaging techniques.

Comprising a full day of presentations; nine speakers have agreed to present their latest research results to show attendees some of the exciting possibilities available today and highlighting the advances that have been made in high-resolution imaging techniques.

The line-up includes world-renowned speaker from Denmark, Professor Jesper Glükstad who is to talk about a mesoscopic toolbox for biophotonics and Professor Daniel Davis, who will give his talk; "Watching immune cells kill using super-resolution microscopy" which demonstrates how photonics is no longer the sole domain of the physics department, he will detail some of the latest developments in high resolution microscopy at the Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research - continue reading online>

News from exhibitors and what will be on show
Hamamatsu Photonics will be showing the ImagEM X2, a new electron multiplying (EM) CCD camera with even faster speed than previous ImagEM cameras.

The ImagEM X2, a completely redesigned camera featuring a back-thinned EM-CCD sensor, offers maximum speed and precision performance for low-light imaging. The ImagEM X2 makes superfast exposures possible and has the sensitivity to provide visually pleasing and quantitatively meaningful images in a photon-starved - read on>
