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:
Is my camera sensitive enough?
Do I get high enough resolution?
Is the field of view big enough to image my sample?
And, critically, is it easy to capture and manipulate my data?
Camera sensitivity is a function of QE, pixel size and camera noise. It is important for sample longevity, where a higher sensitivity camera means light level can be reduced, but also has practical concerns. High sensitivity will improve image contrast and using a lower exposure time lets you live focus without image lag and take movies at higher speed.
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.
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.
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?
