QImaging® Releases New MicroPublisher 6™ Color Camera for Research Publication and Documentation
March 10, 2017
Includes Intuitive Ocular™ Scientific Image Acquisition Software
Surrey, Canada — QImaging, a manufacturer of scientific cameras for life science and OEM applications, releases the MicroPublisher 6 camera, a new color image solution for documentation and publication. The camera delivers high resolution documentation images with a large field of view and accurate color representation. Available upon request, customers will also receive QImaging's Ocular scientific image acquisition software, a $600 value, that provides easy-to-use tools for microscopy and imaging.
The MicroPublisher 6 delivers six million 4.54 micron pixels for maximum detail capture with low powered objectives such as 10, 20 and 40 times magnification. The camera's 16mm diagonal sensor provides twice the field of view of standard color sensors, giving scientists the ability to capture more of the sample area in each image. The camera also incorporates low read noise electronics, and cooling to remove hot pixels and dark current, making it a suitable imaging option for high quality fluorescence documentation.
Initially released with the Retiga R Series cameras, Ocular was built from the ground up as a reliable part of daily research tasks. The software provides a familiar and intuitive user experience and the most current version 1.1 provides innovative and easy to use movie modes and saving functions.
"Researchers rely on QImaging for products that deliver documentation quality images," said Rachit Mohindra, QImaging product manager. "The new MicroPublisher 6 combined with Ocular software gives researchers easier yet more robust color imaging and data collection capabilities with enough flexibility for fluorescence microscopy."
In summary, the MicroPublisher 6 showcases:
- High Resolution Images: Six million pixels deliver detail and quality.
- High Definition Imaging: Small pixels capture the finer details in specimens.
- Large Field of View: Captures two times the data with more detail and quality than other color cameras.
- Fluorescence Imaging Capability: Images can be read out in monochrome for tinting and merging.
- Ocular Software: An innovative imaging interface that was built from the ground up for easily acquiring publication-quality images.
