Two new digital microscope cameras have been introduced by ZEISS. The ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono and ZEISS Axiocam 512 colour complement the current portfolio of high-speed USB 3.0 microscope cameras. With ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono ZEISS for the first time introduces a microscope camera with a scientific CMOS sensor.
Users benefit from low read noise, low light sensitivity and high speed for live cell imaging and acquisition of fast processes. ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono features a 13.3mm diagonal (1/1.2") sensor with a resolution of 2.3MP.
ZEISS Axiocam 512 colour allows acquisition of large sample areas in one high resolution, true colour image. The 12MP CCD sensor with a size of 16mm diagonal (1") delivers a live image and high acquisition speed. In combination with low magnification and zoom objectives, the ZEISS Axiocam 512 colour offers optimal resolution for imaging of large specimens without stitching.
"Due to an enormous technological progress in CMOS sensor technology ZEISS is now able to offer a very fast and sensitive camera for distortion-free live cell imaging," explained Markus Cappellaro, Product Manager Digital Camera Systems. "ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono with its low read noise, high dynamic range and global shutter technology really pushes the envelope. And with ZEISS Axiocam 512 colour we fulfill the need for high resolution microscopy when acquiring large fields of view, for example in materials research and stained histology samples.”
Both camera models as well as the already introduced ZEISS Axiocam 503 and ZEISS Axiocam 506 feature high-speed USB 3.0 connections and active thermoelectric cooling. The ZEISS Axiocam family covers a range of applications, from digital microscopy in industry and routine to high-end scientific imaging.
