Now captures images without PC connection.

The popular Olympus DP26 high-resolution microscope camera now is available for the first time as a stand-alone unit that can be used without a PC connection.

The stand-alone DP26 unit streamlines image capture and saves valuable space in the laboratory.

The new control unit is the latest enhancement to a camera that has had a big impact on the way imaging is done in clinical research and educational laboratories around the world.

The DP26 incorporates a five-megapixel scientific-grade progressive scan CCD sensor and is known for its high sensitivity and brilliant, accurate color reproduction.

What’s more, the camera is extremely easy to use, so the user can focus on the specimen, not on system settings.

Operators handle all routine image caption functions with a simple, familiar one-touch controller.

Because the system is designed for use with the user’s own monitor, the stand-alone DP26 automatically takes advantage of the monitor’s optimal resolution and color output.

The stand-alone system makes it easy for multiple users to share images and make annotations; in addition, the unit can link to a projector for conferences and more.

Specimen images are easy to capture and can be saved in a variety of ways, including via USB or to a password-protected LIS network, all without the necessity for file transfer protocol (FTP) interfaces, web browsers or other intermediate steps.

The colors produced using the DP26 are true to life with high fidelity. Moreover, the high sensitivity (ISO 400) of the DP26 makes it perfect for performing phase-contrast microscopy or working with darkly stained samples, while the high dynamic range of the system produces vivid, crisp images, rich in detail.

The DP26 can capture seven full frames per second without the distorting effects of interlaced scan digital cameras.

The stand-alone DP26 provides automatic shading correction, rapid white balance adjustment, auto-exposure, measurements tools and more.

In addition, data can be stored and accessed using an intuitive file manager that records exposure settings, magnifications and other parameters for easy future reference. The DP26 attaches to the microscope via a standard C-mount.
