ZEISS Axiocam 506 mono

6 Megapixel Microscope Camera for Fast and Sensitive Live Cell Imaging

This flexible 6 megapixel microscope camera is a true allrounder. It produces a high quality and rapid live image as well as the highest level of sensitivity for low-light and live cell imaging. Its high sensitivity enables you to use short exposure times, even with weak fluorescent markers, preventing damage to your samples. You can increase sensitivity through pixel binning – and still have enough resolution for optimal imaging.

The camera’s 1” sensor combines with the large number of pixels to give you a field of view twice as large as that of 2/3” cameras. You will always have a good overview of your sample. Optional synchronization of other components by hardware trigger signals assures reproducible imaging precision.
