 VARS TO DEMONSTRATE LASERTECHNICS PRINTER AT EMSA/MAS '92
 BOSTON, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Lasertechnics, Inc. (NASDAQ: LASX) announces that four value added resellers for the electron microscopy market will exhibit the company's high-resolution DIR Gray Scale Printer at the Electron Microscopy Society of America Show, Aug. 17-20, Hynes Auditorium, Boston, Mass. In addition, the printer will be on display at Lasertechnics booth, No. 1123, where it will be integrated into a high-performance digital imaging system.
 The Lasertechnics DIR Gray Scale Printer produces page-size continuous tone images that rival conventional photographs at a fraction of the cost of instant film, a common electron microscopy output method. During EMSA, it will be demonstrated at the booths of ElectroScan Corporation, SEMICAPS Inc., Hitachi Scientific Instruments (Nissei Sangyo America), and Advanced Microscopy Techniques.
 "The use of the DIR Gray Scale Printer by such a prestigious group of electron microscopy value added resellers is confirmation of the performance capabilities of the DIR and of the sales opportunity that exists for Lasertechnics as it penetrates this $435 million global market," states Louis F. Bieck Jr., president of Lasertechnics.
 ElectroScan, Booth No. 526, the first VAR to offer the DIR in the electron microscopy market, will exhibit the printer with its breakthrough Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM). The ElectroScan ESEM, the world's only full-function SEM not limited to a high vacuum environment, allows the unrestricted, undistorted direct observation of any material in its natural state. When utilized with the Lasertechnics DIR Gray Scale Printer, the system can produce high- resolution hardcopy images with a maximum of 2048 pixels x 2772 lines x 256 gray levels, allowing microscopists to see microstructures not seen before.
 SEMICAPS, Booth No. 803, will display the DIR printer with its SEMICAPS workstation. In addition to the printer, the system includes upgrade analog SEMs, EDS attachments, optical microscopes and a digital platform. With acquired SEM images ranging from 512 x 512 to 4096 x 4096 pixel resolution, the system is ideal for output of color x-ray dot maps from x-ray spectrometers.
 Hitachi Scientific Instruments (Nissei Sangyo America), Booth No. 212, will be running the DIR between two PCs using GPIB (IEEE-488) interface. One PC will be connected to a field emission SEM and the second to a transmission electron microscope (TEM). Both high- resolution systems will be capturing images in TIFF format.
 Advanced Microscopy Techniques, Booth No. 124, will be introducing a CCD camera for TEMs. The camera offers 1024 x 1024 image capability and integration to the DIR allows real time hardcopy output of photographic- quality images on paper or transparency.
 At Lasertechnics' booth, No. 1123, the printer will be operating in a UNIX environment on a Sun SPARCstation clone, to produce high- resolution output of images enhanced using Image-Pro Plus software from Media Cybernetics.
 In addition to offering high-quality output, the printer offers daylight media loading and self-contained processing, which eliminates the need for additional toners, liquid chemicals or ribbons. It is capable of receiving digital data from virtually any source, including tape, optical disc, hard disc or active memory. Both SCSI and GPIB (IEEE-488) interface models are available.
