Jenoptik CCD Digital Camera ProgRes Research / MF Scan

Discover highest image quality. Microscanning Increase spatial resolution.
The high sensitivity of the color ProgRes CCD Research cameras warrants brilliant images, especially when working with low-light specimens. Expeditious and smooth operation is provided by sensitive CCD sensors with high frame rates and a broad dynamic range. Especially the cooled camera models are adapted to handle mainly low-noise long-time exposures.

    Monochrome camera with highest resolution. Precision to the detail. Extreme in resolution, sensitivity and dynamics. The cooled microscope camera ProgRes MFscan generates brilliant images up to 12.5 mega pixel resolution via Microscanning. The sensitive 1.4 mega pixel CCD sensor, excellent electronics including analogue gain and switchable cooling, guarantee low-noise long-time exposures not only in fluorescence microscopy. Cooling and sensor capsule. In the ProgRes MFscan the monochrome CCD sensor is encased by a hermetically sealed, nitrogen-flushed capsule. The sensor is cooled by a Peltier element, a heat sink and a fan. The camera can expose an image up to 5 minutes and digitizes the image data with 14 bit. Software with fluorescence mode. The fluorescence mode in the CapturePro software, which is included in the delivery of a camera, supports the user in taking fluorescence images. Up to five single images with the respective fluorescence filters can be captured, the auto-fluorescence is eliminated and the complete image can be composed. Easy integration. The camera ProgRes MFscan is connected via IEEE1394a FireWire to a computer and via C-Mount to the microscope.

    CapturePro supports the excellent quality of ProgRes microscope cameras and delivers optimal image quality and reproducible results. Calibrations and image correction matrices, for example, shadings can be individually generated for your camera and are saved in your own user profile.All ProgRes cameras are controlled by the powerful ProgRes CapturePro image capture software. Besides fundamental adjustable parameters such as exposure time, white balance, RGB color correction and gamma, contrast, brightness and saturation this software offers a lot of other features like: Multi-fluorescence mode - Programmable resolution - Individual user profiles - Measurement capabilities - Continuous automatic exposure control - Time-lapse - Shading calibrations - Multi-camera operation - Multi-focus - Image annotations

     By means of just a few mouse clicks it is possible to program time-lapse experiments, coordinate multifluorescence image capture sessions and conduct various measurements in the live as well as in the captured image. Of course shading corrections can also be applied. The configuration of the software allows displaying or hiding individual functionalities, depending on the particular application.
