New partnership to help clinics diagnose infectious diseases
Canon and the University of Maryland will "develop a highly automated system providing rapid infectious disease diagnosis" using the company's genetic analysis system. The research team is led by Hiroshi Inoue, senior fellow, Canon U.S. Life Sciences, and William Bentley, chair of the Fischell Department of Bioengineering in the university's A. James Clark School of Engineering.
They "will pioneer the use of microfluidic chip technology in disposable testing cartridges containing human blood samples," the company said.

It's adding a new surveillance model to its line of 1.3-megapixel fixed Internet Protocol security cameras, the VB-M700F. Connected directly to a computer network and, if desired, to the Internet, the camera offers "outstanding image quality [and] built-in video analytics," Canon says.
The market for the camera includes "transportation centers, banks and ATM rooms, schools, retail stores, gaming establishments and many other IP security-video environments."
