Scientific microscope cameras designed for your needs
Making the right choice
When observing or documenting fluorescently labeled cells, scientific
camera users should be asking themselves the following questions:
Can I see, alter and capture my images live?
Will my camera interfere with my experiment?
Can I easily record my experiments?
And, critically, is it easy to capture and manipulate my data?
Live image capture is required to ensure lag-free, real-time sample exploration or positioning of manipulators. The ability to preview images live (brightfield, IRDIC or fluorescence) requires a camera capable of fast update rates combined with high sensitivity. High sensitivity ensures the fast update rate can be maintained even with low signal levels.
Experiment & movie capture presents far more challenges than conventional movie recording. Users may want to know: Can I start/stop capture as I want? Can I preview, re-focus, or change my experiment during the acquisition? Can I capture events once I’ve observed them? Can I synchronize my acquisition with external devices such as a light source?
Interference & vibration is common with scientific cameras, either from their electronic circuits or from the power supply used to run and cool the camera to improve noise performance. Cooling the camera is essential for the minimization of dark current and hot pixel correction. Most cameras use fan cooling, however this can cause experimental vibration which contributes to low-quality data.
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? Would you like to automatically put marker bars on the image? Do you want to show markers or crosshairs to help with alignment or positioning?
