HEERBRUGG, Switzerland, and WETZLAR, Germany, June 21, 2013 — Leica Microsystems’ two new microscope cameras are equipped with sensors for live imaging up to 30 fps and a USB 3.0 interface for fast data transfer. The Leica Application Suite (LAS) and the LAS Advanced Fluorescence software provide image acquisition, analysis and documentation for routine bright-field or fluorescence applications.
The DFC3000 G, suited for routine fluorescence applications, features a passive cooling architecture and correlated pixel double sampling for clear fluorescence signals and low background noise. With its CCD sensor, it is suitable for low-light situations, allowing users to rapidly inspect samples and protect them from photo damage.
The DMC2900 features a 3.1-megapixel CMOS sensor for bright-field applications in research, industry and life sciences. It provides processing power to match tasks such as capturing multiple images in mosaics or Z-stacks. Its CIE (Commission Internationale de l' Éclairage)-Lab color engine processes images in real time with stable live image speed.
- 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.
