ZEISS Axiocam 712 mono

12 Megapixel Microscope Camera for Fast High Resolution Imaging of Large Areas

This camera brings lowest noise and high quantum efficiency for those applications that require highest sensitivity. Combining a large sensor with an abundance of small and sensitive pixels makes your Axiocam 712 mono a very flexible camera, suitable for countless different applications. The actively cooled CMOS sensor offers lowest readout noise and stable operation over long periods of time. Exposure times can range from 100 μs for the most dynamic specimens up to 60 s for detection of the dimmest signals.

This camera delivers more than 20 frames per second at full pixel count and goes up to more than 100 frames per second with a reduced pixel count. Peak quantum efficiency of over 72 %, a broad detection spectrum and a high near-IR sensitivity complete the camera’s set of excellent features. That makes Axiocam 712 mono your all-in-one tool for monochrome imaging applications, ranging from imaging of large sample regions and dynamic specimens to high-sensitivity microscopy of fragile fluorescent specimens.
