Leica Unveils High-speed Camera System for Live Cell Research
Product News Nov 22, 2007
Leica Microsystems has released Leica DFC360 FX, a monochrome digital camera designed to produce images at maximum temporal resolution. The camera system achieves maximum frame rates of 20 fps for full frame up to more than 100 fps in binning mode.
A sensor and active Peltier cooling ensure a high dynamic range even for low light intensities. The Leica DFC360 FX is the ideal solution for excellent results in live cell imaging.
The Leica DFC360 FX will convince user with its performance on PC and MAC systems, Leica Imaging Software LAS and LAS AF and optimal integration into high-end fluorescence systems of Leica Microsystems such as Leica AM TIRF MC or Leica AF6000 LX.
Experiments such as z-stack, multi-channel fluorescence with overlay, 3D deconvolution, time controlled analysis and many other applications are controlled effectively. Ultrafast and uncomplicated data transmission is ensured by the Firewire 1394b interface.
The light sensitivity and the frame rate can be further enhanced by binning. Binning and ROI can be used, as can multi-channel experiments with different amplifications, in the fast overlapping mode.
The Leica DFC360 FX proves its full performance potential with ultrafast fluorescence filter wheels and perfect sequencer synchronization.
