PITTSBURGH, September 29, 2014 — ChemImage announced that founder and CTO, Patrick J. Treado, PhD, will deliver two scientific presentations on the company’s work in the detection of various materials using Molecular Chemical Imaging (MCI) at the Great Scientific Exchange (SciX) 2014 conference in Reno, Nevada.
Dr. Treado will first present on behalf of ChemImage’s subsidiary company, ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) regarding the company’s work to extend its Widefield hyperspectral imaging technology to detecting and identifying explosives and narcotics. The presentation entitled, “Portable, Real-Time Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Hyperspectral Imaging System for the Detection of Explosive and Narcotic Threats;” will be given during the “IR and NIR” session on Monday, September 29th and provides an overview of the VeroVision system’s capability for detection of explosive residues on surfaces and detection of drugs of abuse.
The second presentation, “Conformal Liquid Crystal Tunable Filters – Compressive Molecular Chemical Imaging in Real-Time”, he will discuss a new approach to molecular chemical (i.e. hyperspectral) imaging which involves a novel, multivariate liquid crystal tunable filter technology that enables real-time detection of materials versus complex backgrounds with improved performance relative to more traditional molecular chemical imaging instruments. Dr. Treado will present these findings during “The Latest in Biomedical Imaging: II” session on Thursday, October 3rd.
The SciX conference is presented by the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) which was founded in 1973 as a Federation of member organizations for the exchange of ideas at the forefront of disseminating technical information dealing with the applied, pure, or natural sciences.
