The Micro Camera Array Microscope - Enabling gigapixel imaging for behavioural biology
High-throughput optical microscopy is currently transforming the research fields of genetics, drug discovery and neuroscience. Due to challenges with large lens design, no standard microscope can capture more than 50 megapixels per image snapshot, which makes it impossible to simultaneously image at cellular-resolution over a multi-centimeter viewing area (field of view, FOV). To enable cellular resolution imaging over fields of view 10s of cm in diameter, we utilize an array of miniaturized cameras, tiled in a
12x8 configuration collectively called the MCAM. Each camera is individually addressable and controllable to enable rapid acquisition over the fields of view as large as 20cm in diameter providing gigapixel scale images. Preliminary applications for the MCAM are being developed for behavior imaging of zebrafish larvae in collaboration with Prof. Naumann in the Duke School of Medicine.
