For High-Resolution Color Photos Of Microscopic Specimens
THORNWOOD, N.Y., Jan. 28 -- Carl Zeiss has introduced its AxioCam MRc5 high-resolution, color digital camera with 5-megapixel CCD sensor, FireWire, high dynamics and great flexibility in readout modes.

The AxioCam MRc5 offers brilliant, true color, high-quality images rich in detail at an amazing price/performance ratio. It is perfectly designed to suit applications in pathology, histology, cytology as well as biology and materials research and testing.

The five-megapixel, 36-bit RGB color-depth camera is based on a new generation of innovative CCD sensors. Because of the increased pixel density and significantly higher image resolution, these sensors produce color images of exceptional brilliance and needle-sharp details. The camera features a dynamic range of 1:1300, with 12-bit digitization to ensure loss-free image dynamics and to guarantee high performance when working with difficult specimens (e.g., reflecting surfaces in materials microscopy).

AxioCam MRc5 offers exceptionally fast live image acquisition. The frame rate can be freely selected, providing an ideal ratio between speed of data transmission and resolution that specimens require. Maximum electronic signal processing guarantees minimal interference, providing excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

FireWire offers many advantages: simple link to a computer 100 percent computer-controlled camera operation and rapid live image speeds. Above all, the FireWire interface allows direct connection to the laptop. The camera is completely integrated with the operating software to ensure a powerful and upgradeable digital imaging system with image acquisition and processing functions.
