Etaluma and DRVision Ink Partnership on Combining Lumascope (LS Microscope) Live Cell Imaging with Aivia Image Visualization and Analysis
June 21, 2017 – (Carlsbad, CA) Today Etaluma and DRVision announced a strategic partnership that combines the power of imaging by Etaluma’s next generation inverted LS microscopes (Lumascopes) and DRVision’s innovative image visualization, analysis and data exploration technology called Aivia. Together these products provide a powerful turnkey solution for microscopy-based assays and especially live cell assays performed within incubators and hypoxia chambers. “DRVision’s software offers a perfect image analysis solution for us (marketed as Lumaquant) due to its simple approach to a variety of cellular assays predefined as Recipes. DRVision’s Aivia provide us a best-in-class cell analysis solution,” said Chris Shumate, CEO of Etaluma. “Etaluma’s high resolution LS microscopes are ideal for live cell imaging and offer an attractive blend of resolution, functionality and affordability. Adding DRVision’s image analysis solutions to the Etaluma system will enable users to benefit from a complete workflow from image acquisition to visualization and advanced analysis” offered Luciano Lucas, Executive VP at DRVision.
