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.
