Olympus Digital Microscope Camera Range Offers Flexibility for any Application
Product News Dec 18, 2007
The wide variety of high-performance digital camera systems from Olympus offers users a specialized solution for any demanding life science and industrial microscopy imaging application. Each Olympus camera system has been integrated with technologies, which allows users to achieve excellent image quality as seen through the microscope eyepieces.
The Olympus digital camera range for microscopy offers high-quality imaging systems for all life and materials science procedures, from pathological examination to inspection of electronic parts and industrial materials. Whether users need true color fidelity, high-resolution capabilities, pixel-precise black & white capture or the versatility to image in both color and monochrome, there is a dedicated Olympus digital camera for their requirements.
For high-quality color reproduction and resolution, the Olympus range includes the DP20, DP25, ColorView I, II and IIIu, ColorCube CC-12 and the ALTRA20.
In addition to high-resolution, these cameras offer a wide variety of features and superior technologies, such as ultra-fast frame rates, ICC profiles for color fidelity, and up to three pixel binning levels. These features mean that all Olympus digital color camera systems provide outstanding quality and enable real-time true color reproduction.
In addition, they are excellent for both brightfield applications and a broad range of microscopy and imaging digital documentation processes.
Even though fluorescence microscopy is ultimately concerned with using the best combinations of excitation and emission spectra of dyes, the cameras used for the fluorescent microscopy imaging are designed to provide maximum sensitivity and clarity, the company says.
The Olympus black & white camera range includes the F-View II and DP30BW, with features such as fast frame rates and CCD readout speeds, high-resolution and sensitivity. These provide clear and dependable fluorescence microscopy images, minimizing the chances of cell damage and fluorescence fading.
Olympus also offers a choice of universal cameras for both life and materials science that provide both color and black & white, including the DP71 and ColorView III. Using the latest interface technology, high-sensitivity, color fidelity and superior contrast, the Olympus universal microscopy imaging cameras unite performance in brightfield- and fluorescence-imaging.
All digital cameras in the Olympus range are fully compatible with the Olympus cell and analysis imaging software, resulting in image acquisition, processing, analysis, evaluation and report generation. Each software family presents a range of solutions especially designed to further enhance image quality during live viewing with flexible functionality.
