Olympus Launches Modular Cell* Family of Imaging Systems for Life Science
Product News Aug 11, 2008
Olympus has launched the cell* family range of imaging systems. cell*3.0 introduces functions for every member of the cell* family, making them easy to use.
All modules offer enhanced functionality and technology, and are designed to ensure coordinated operation of microscope, camera and peripheral devices, taking imaging to the next level.
The Olympus cell* family is an integrated collection of software tools and hardware systems that can provide a fully flexible and modular range of imaging products.
All seven members have been developed to meet the specific requirements of different applications, and are comprised of cameras, microscopes and illumination systems from Olympus, controlled by advanced Windows-based software that ensures all parts work as one system.
cell^A, cell^B and cell^D are complete solutions for simple image acquisition and documentation, with a respectively increasing range of functions and features. cell^F and cell^P are comprehensive systems, designed for specific research and fluorescent application areas. The final members of the cell* family - cell^M and cell^R - are high-end, multi-module, fluorescence imaging stations offering complete solutions for live-cell microscopy.
The Olympus Camera Control (OCC) tool offers control of the latest generation of high-resolution colour and monochrome cameras within each cell* family member. It provides the user with simple controls necessary to operate and control all aspects of acquisition in one tool window situated next to the image.
Furthermore, application-specific camera settings can be stored and retrieved through the extendable function feature, making even the most complex of imaging tasks simpler to achieve.
