New ZEISS Axiocam models complement camera portfolio

ZEISS introduced two new digital microscope cameras during the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB 2015) in San Diego. ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono and ZEISS Axiocam 512 color complement the current portfolio of high-speed USB 3.0 microscope cameras.

With ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono ZEISS for the first time introduces a microscope camera with a scientific CMOS sensor. Users benefit from low read noise, excellent low light sensitivity and high speed for live cell imaging and acquisition of fast processes. ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono features a 1/1.2″ (13.3 mm diagonal) sensor with a resolution of 2.3 megapixels, making it an attractive entry into the world of scientific CMOS imaging.

ZEISS Axiocam 512 color allows acquisition of large sample areas in one high resolution, true color image. The 12 megapixel CCD sensor with a size of 1″ (16 mm diagonal) delivers an excellent live image and high acquisition speed. ZEISS Axiocam 512 color in combination with low magnification and zoom objectives offers optimal resolution for imaging of large specimens without stitching.

“Due to an enormous technological progress in CMOS sensor technology ZEISS is now able to offer a very fast and sensitive camera for distortion-free live cell imaging,” explains Markus Cappellaro, Product Manager Digital Camera Systems. “ZEISS Axiocam 702 mono with its low read noise, high dynamic range and global shutter technology really pushes the envelope. And with ZEISS Axiocam 512 color we fulfill the need for high resolution microscopy when acquiring large fields of view, for example in materials research and stained histology samples.

Both new camera models as well as the already introduced ZEISS Axiocam 503 and ZEISS Axiocam 506 feature high-speed USB 3.0 connections and active thermoelectric cooling. The ZEISS Axiocam family covers a broad range of applications, from digital microscopy in industry and routine to high-end scientific imaging.
