CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 22, 2012 — Olympus America Inc. offers a dual-sensor scientific-grade microscope camera that combines digital color technology with the high sensitivity of monochrome imaging, switching quickly and easily between color and monochrome acquisition. The multifunctional DP80 dual-CCD digital camera offers two camera sensors in one: 12.5 megapixels of color imaging for bright-field microscopy applications in one sensor, along with 14-bit, high-sensitivity, low-noise monochrome imaging designed for fluorescence imaging in a separate sensor.

It is two complete parfocal and parcentric cameras in one, designed for researchers who previously had to align two cameras to a dual port for acquiring fluorescence images and capturing color bright-field images for publication or reference purposes.

Using pixel-shifting technology, the DP80 images up to 12.5 megapixels of color by capturing subpixel Bayer color information. Its fine-detail-processing mode enhances color resolution and results in sharper images. Its monochrome mode offers high sensitivity for dim fluorescence images.

Because proprietary cellSens software drives the DP80’s dual-sensor system, users can capture high-sensitivity monochrome data and high-resolution color information automatically from the two camera sensors in rapid sequence. Color algorithms help the camera capture good RGB color, which can be merged with multiple fluorescence channels, resulting in high-quality images. Tasks such as imaging tissue stained with a chromogenic or a fluorophore, adjusting RGB information and creating revealing bright-field/fluorescence images are intuitive and simple.

The cellSens software provides automatic shading correction, rapid white-balance adjustment, quick autoexposure and extensive measurement tools. Thanks to an automated file manager, exposure settings, magnifications and other parameters are captured for easy future reference.
