Scientific microscope cameras designed for your needs
Making the right choice
When trying to capture high quality color images customers should be asking themselves the following questions:
Do I get the resolution needed to capture all the detail?
Is the field of view big enough to image my sample?
Can the camera also be used to capture fluorescence images?
Is it easy to capture and manipulate my data?
Resolution is how much detail can be seen and this is driven by the pixel size of the camera and the microscope lens system. If the microscope is capable of resolving high detail, it’s important that the camera pixel size can match it.
Fluorescence capability is typically a hard task for a color camera because color camera sensors are less sensitive than monochrome sensors and can’t easily merge separate colors such as DAPI, FITC and Texas Red. However, for many color camera users the compromise is needed as both color and fluorescence imaging is required. This means the color camera needs to be able to capture color data but also have the high QE and low noise needed to operate in monochrome for fluorescence imaging.
Digital image capture is the suitability of the imaging software to the needs of your application. Do you need the software to make it easy to save as common image formats such as jpeg or avi? Do you want to tint images live or merge images post capture? Do you use line profiles and make line measurements? Would you like to automatically put marker bars on the image?
Field of view is normally defined as a diagonal measurement of the camera sensor. If you have a large sample or want to increase throughput by imaging multiple cells at once, a larger field of view will let you see more of the sample area.
