Surrey, British Columbia (PRWEB) September 24, 2009
QImaging, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance, easy-to-use digital cameras for life science and industrial applications, announced the launch of "QTube", a video-based learning tool that provides scientists and researchers with practical information on many of the latest biological imaging applications, technologies and techniques.
Daily, scientists must focus on performing sophisticated biological research that includes a multitude of elaborate methodologies, protocols and procedures. In addition, they depend on a myriad of state-of-the-art laboratory technologies and techniques, the majority of which require some degree of technical familiarity and understanding. Consequently, researchers find that a great deal of their precious time gets diverted from their science to equipment manuals and learning curves.
QImaging's QTube is part of a new movement in scientific publishing to provide real-time, practical assistance to those who need "quick and easy" access to life science digital imaging resources. Located on QImaging's website, QTube provides easy access to a multitude of imaging techniques and procedures. Initial topics include imaging techniques such as color overlay, installation and operating procedures for camera drivers and helpful procedures such as making live intensity measurements using multichannel products such as Photometrics' Dual View imager.
In addition, QTube provides a whiteboard for comments and questions about imaging techniques, as well as a mechanism for users to request additional video tools they'd like to have available on QTube. Users are free to bookmark and share QTube Videos and related educational resources.
