STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., July 10, 2006 -- Diagnostic Instruments has introduced the RT3 Slider digital camera system, saying it gives ultimate flexibility to researchers by combining both monochrome and color capability in one camera. The RT3 Slider is the newest camera version from Diagnostic Instruments' popular RT line of cameras, and delivers improved performance in a number of areas, making it an ideal core laboratory camera, the company said.

RT3Slidercamera.jpgThe RT3 Slider is a 14-bit camera featuring high-speed FireWire connectivity. With an effective differential cooling of –43 ºC, the camera provides significant performance for long exposure fluorescence imaging by reducing dark current to below 0.003 electrons per pixel per second. Users can easily switch the slider and get color images through the application of ICC color profiling standards.

The RT3 Slider has reduced read noise, providing higher dynamic range when combined with the deep pixel wells of its Kodak KAI 2020 CCD. Frame capture rates have been tripled when compared with its predecessor, the company said.

Features and Advantages:
  • Reduces dark noise for long exposure image capture
  • Resolves fine detail
  • Facilitates live mode previews of low-light specimens
  • High-speed imaging for real time viewing
  • Extra bit depth for image enhancement
  • Electronic shuttering eliminates mechanical shutter shortcomings related to speed, wear and vibration
  • Allows for easy installation, hot-swapping and laptop connectivity for greater ease-of-use
  • Provides essential tools for modern microscopy and is supported by third party software companies for high end applications
All Spot cameras come with a camera head, FireWire data cable (6-pin), power supply cable, power supply, power cord, a software installation CD (includes drivers), software and hardware user guides and a 2-year warranty. For more information, visit: www.diaginc.com

GLOSSARY
dark current
The current that flows in a photodetector when there is no optical radiation incident on the detector and operating voltages are applied.
dark noise
The noise produced in a photodetector when the photocathode is shielded from all external optical radiation and operating voltages are applied.
digital camera
A camera that converts a collected image into pixels that are black or white digital or shades of gray. The digital data may then be manipulated to enhance or otherwise modify the resulting viewed image.
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
image
In optics, an image is the reconstruction of light rays from a source or object when light from that source or object is passed through a system of optics and onto an image forming plane. Light rays passing through an optical system tend to either converge (real image) or diverge (virtual image) to a plane (also called the image plane) in which a visual reproduction of the object is formed. This reconstructed pictorial representation of the object is called an image.
light
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
