Watertown, MA-The editors of R&D magazine and Micro/Nano newsletter recognized Boston Micromachines' latest version of its Multi-DM as one of the most innovative products of 2007.

The magazine and newsletter recognize Boston Micromachines for its innovation in developing a deformable mirror that is used for ultra high resolution retinal imaging which is necessary for the early detection of ocular disease.

The 25 awards are given to the developers of the most innovative and most groundbreaking products, processes, inventions, discoveries or innovations in micro- and nanotechnology in the past year and those having the largest impact on specific industry or society in general.

Boston Micromachines' new mirror has an increased stroke while maintaining high resolution. The mirror can provide high speed real-time imaging with a 5mm aperture perfectly suited for a dilated pupil.

The Multi-DM will also enhance other biological imaging areas. Biological imaging instruments can suffer from resolution limitations, constraining the ability of researchers and clinicians to detect critical detail.
