Scientific / Microscopy Cameras

There are a number of camera sensor types available. Below is a table showing their suitablity depending on your scientific / microscopy application.

Application / Sensor Type CMOS CCD sCMOS EMCCD InGaAs ICCD
Brightfield    
Low-Light / Fluorescence    
High Speed        
Infrared / NIR      

If you are planning to use the camera on a microscope, there is also the size of the sensor to consider. The main ones are 1/3″, 1/2″, 2/3″ and 1″. The larger sized sensors generally cost more, but will give you better quality images since more light will fall onto the sensor. The other advantage of larger sensors, is that it will give you a bigger field of view. The sensor under 1″, will typically need additional optics in the microscope coupler, in order to get a similar field of view. The additional optics are never perfect, and sometimes cause vignetting/shading around the edges.

Dage MTI

Infrared CCD Monochrome Video Camera

1/2″ IR camera ideal for applications requiring real-time imaging with enhanced sensitivity in the near IR and visible regions. Remote control for contrast enhancement

The newly designed IR-1000 real-time camera (30 frames/sec.) offers enhanced sensitivity across the entire visible and near IR spectrum, with a 5X increase in sensitivity at 900nm.  The extended IR response allows deeper penetration into tissue sections (e.g. brain slices), while the high sensitivity enables the user to detect images even in lower light conditions.

To provide optimum contrast, the IR-1000 camera now includes electronics that automatically and instantaneously readjust when a scene changes.  This innovative design is especially useful when changing magnification levels, specimens, and/or lighting levels.  The camera’s new real-time edge enhancement feature sharpens the edges and delivers a clearer picture by resolving fine details in the image.

With a convenient C-mount, the IR-1000 is widely used in a “live” mode connected directly to a monitor.  An optional computer interface board is also available.  Dage-MTI’s new real-time camera is ideal for applications such as electrophysiology, infrared differential interference contrast (IR-DIC), failure analysis, forensics and semiconductor inspection.

Dage MTI

4K Ultra HD Microscopy Camera

Dage-MTI’s 4K-UHD is the ultimate live display microscopy camera for brightfield imaging. The 4K-UHD offers full, ultra high definition, 3840×2160 output (up to 60fps) with 1600 TV lines of resolution! Small features at low magnification that could not be resolved satisfactorily using other HD cameras may now be resolved with the Dage 4K-UHD

Like the family of HD cameras Dage offers, the 4K-UHD is preprogrammed for perfect color by critical adjustments of 6 hues – not just red, green and blue, but yellow, cyan and magenta as well. The 4K-UHD utilizes 3 CMOS chips with pixel offset technology to increase spatial resolution without sacrificing real time, up to 60fps for live streaming. This fast frame rate enables the operator to move samples without smear lag or jitter. Real-time, 60fps video streaming also allows effortless focus and specimen placement for more efficient slide reviews.

Accessories- HypIRia™ Objective lenses

The HypIRia™ are the only telecentric objective lenses optimized for 1 to 2.9 µm. Designed for machine vision and industrial applications, their heavy duty stainless steel and aluminum housing makes them quite resistant to harsh environment. They are well-suited for high-end scientific applications, mostly with spectroscopy or multiband due to their wide field and telecentrism. They succeed at providing a wide aperture over such a long spectral range while still limiting distortion and chromatism. This wide aperture allows an amazing throughput which offers high quality imaging even for low-light imaging. All surfaces have an anti-reflective broadband coating effective over the whole spectral range. The manual fine focus allows for a very precise adjustments of the image. They come in three different focal lengths (11 mm, 15 mm and 25 mm) and their input ports (SM1 and M45) can easily be coupled with standard filters and protective windows. The H11 has a particularily wide field of view, making it stand out even more.

Note 1: in 3 nm steps,

Note 2: There is no spatial resolution in case of Linescan sensors. Width is 2048 and 8 or 5 are number of lines.

Note 3: There is no typical value, these are Approximate numbers of pixels. The original sensor resolution can be interpolated.

Note 4: Generation 2 of the sensor. High reproducibility of the results – distances between the peaks are almost equidistant, position of the peaks differ from sensor to sensor by only +/- 1-2 nm, let’s talk about your requirements
