Nowadays, image processing is found in a wide range of optical microscopy applications. Examples for this are medical and biological research, diagnostics, testing of medicinal products, or material sciences. Microscopy cameras are an important component of these systems and the specific requirements of your application will drive the selection of the most suitable microscopy camera. You will learn the factors guiding the choice of color or monochrome cameras, and the functional differences and benefits of CCD and CMOS sensors, and of the various interfaces. Further, you will learn how sensor and pixel size, resolution and frame rates will influence your camera selection. Choose your microscopy camera wisely, to achieve optimal image quality, and to minimize system costs.
