This video describes the hardware, software and applications supported by the PARISS hyperspectral microscopy system.
PARISS offers two modes of operation SnapShot and Unlimited Field Scanning This video illustrates both modes
Like its macro relative, the goal of hyperspectral imaging is to correlate target objects or conditions in a heterogeneous Field-Of- View (FOV) with their spectra. However, many times a particular object or area in a FOV is best served by a “quick look” evaluation. PARISS enables this by using “SnapShot mode,” where, at a click of the mouse, a fast, spatially resolved spectral acquisition is acquired across the target area.  Once a target region of interest ROI has been identified then taking a full hyperspectral image of the entire FOV makes sense. SnapShot mode takes a rapid slice across a target ROI and produces hundreds of spatially resolved spectra in milliseconds.  PARISS software then classifies these spectra and compares them to library spectra.  Each SnapShot is independent and does not depend on past or future acquisitions. Hyperspectral field scanning mode: An unlimited FOV is scanned by acquiring a series of concatenated SnapShots to create a full hyperspectral image.  A field scan can be set to a cover a selected distance or can be simply run until the user hits “stop”.
