Zeiss recently announced that it has added four new CMOS cameras for digital imaging in light microscopy.
These cameras are part of the Oberkochen, Germany-based company’s Axiocam series. The Axiocam 705 color and 712 color are designed to deliver the best possible image quality for histology, pathology or material research and analysis, thanks to excellent color rendition and greatly improved dynamic range, according to the company. The Axiocam 705 mono and 712 mono models feature fast frame rates and high dynamic range for fluorescence live-cell imaging. They also have extended near-IR sensitivity, designed to allow for deeper insights into sample structures.
New CMOS in these cameras offer small 3.45 µm pixels and low noise levels in combination with a USB 3.0 platform for fast imaging experiments. Also, the new cameras’ global shutter architecture allows for capturing dynamic samples without creating motion artifacts, the company said.
The Zeiss Axiocam 705 mono and Axiocam 705 color are 5-megapixel cameras optimized for fast speed and high dynamic range. The company’s Axiocam 712 mono and Axiocam 712 color are designed for the acquisition of large samples with 12 megapixels, and may greatly reduce the need for stitching.
