Olympus True Colour camera
The Olympus XC50 offers a synthesis of properties required in the field of fluorescence microscopy: high resolution, extreme sensitivity, cooling, variable exposure times and external trigger function. The XC50 has a 2576 x 1932 pixel CCD chip with a bit depth of 14 bits. The 2x binning mode enables frame rates of more than 22 images per second. This makes it easier to focus and to locate areas of interest on samples while conserving highly sensitive fluorescence samples. The high-resolution mode is ideal for acquisition.
The Olympus XC50 is extremely sensitive and supports long integration times of up to 160 seconds. In combination with the camera cooling, these characteristics are ideal requirements for making perfect acquisitions of low-intensity fluorescence. In the live mode, the XC50 can superimpose a colour LUT onto a monochrome b/w image in accordance with the fluorescence emission.
