If you’re looking for a microscope that can differentiate between well over a billion-trillion colors, you’ll be happy to know that The Prism and Reflector Imaging Spectroscopy System (PARISS) announced the launch of the PARISS Model “PHSI”, a new laboratory based hardware and software system.
This unique hyperspectral instrument can help detect life threatening conditions, abnormalities, or defects in applications and/or materials.
Hyperspectral imaging instrumentation offers high quality solutions if you are a researcher in the bio-sciences and industry fields. The newly launched PARISS Model “PHSI” at PARISS operates in field scanning mode in darkfield scatter, fluorescence, luminescence, transmission, reflection and absorption.
Hyperspectral imaging is a technique combining spectroscopy and imaging, where each image is acquired at a narrow band of the electromagnetic spectrum. As such, spectroscopy is able to positively identify material that toxic versus non-toxic.
Hyperspectral microscopy essentially transfers the technology from air and space to a microscope. The new PARISS Model “PHSI” acquires the spectra presented by a field of view (FOV) as it is translated on a computer-controlled microscope stage.
The custom software sorts and classifies all spectra in the FOV. In addition, the software shows the location and distribution of all, or selected, spectral-objects on a spectral topographical map.
The PARISS Model “PHSI” is ultra-sensitive, being able to differentiate between well over a billion-trillion colors, while a digital color camera can handle a little more than 16 million colors.
The PARISS hyperspectral imaging microscope (PHM) incorporates the PARISS, an imaging spectrograph that has 90% efficiency. The PARISS prism is over 90% efficient, substantially boosting sensitivity and outperforming all alternatives.

All PARISS Hyperspectral systems are custom configured to meet the needs of an application. You can use them in bio-research, medical, physics, chemistry, and industrial laboratories to characterize samples including biopsies, tissues, live cells, nanoparticles taken up in cells, and vegetation.
According to the official website of LightForm Inc., “Unlike most hyperspectral software PARISS utilizes Spectral Waveform Cross Correlation Analysis (SWCCA) in order to best extract signal buried in noise and increase sensitivity. This translates into faster acquisition time even in a low S/N environment.”
