The heart of our technology lies in the advancements to an imaging technology known as Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS). CMOS imagers, because of their low-noise and high-resolution, are challenging and displacing Charge Coupled Devices (CCD’s) that have been the standard imaging platform for the past 40 years.
Cellect’s parent company, Micro-Imaging Solutions, LLC. (MIS: www.micro-imaging.us) capitalized on this technology while taking it one step further by patenting the optimization of the circuitry (image processing) and camera (image sensor) configuration separately. This separate configuration allows for incorporation into nano-sized medical devices to enable the creation of new products that would not otherwise be feasible.
Unlike the current industry focus to place the entire CMOS camera on a single chip, our patented technology involves the removal of the majority of the image processing circuitry away from the image capture plane (pixels) of a single-chip CMOS camera. Our novel, unique platform-enabling and patented CMOS technology allows for a variety of medical applications.
Our patented CMOS camera technology also has important applications in modern smartphones and tablets. Patents that were filed in the late 1990's taught the same separation of the processing circuitry and image capture (via pixels) from the CMOS camera to enable smaller wireless phones due to reduced camera chip size. With the advent of mega-pixel cameras, it was critical that the vast amount of processing necessary to handle the data remain on a separate processor board.
