Demand for fast, low-cost production of true-colour, high-resolution micrographs of light microscope specimens or colour contrasting techniques, is met by the AxioCam MRc5, a colour camera with a high-resolution, 5-megapixel CCD sensor, according to the manufacturer Carl Zeiss. The camera and a fast FireWire data interface also enable connection to a PC or laptop.
‘A fast, live image of the microscope specimen is available and permits smooth handling and setting of the specimen on the microscope. Thanks to the AxioVision recording software, control of the camera is the ultimate in convenience,’ the firm adds. Also, ‘... the camera, software and microscope can be upgraded with many software modules. With coloured images and colour contrasting techniques (e.g. polarisation microscopy of metal or rock sections) in materials research, industrial inspection and the life sciences, this offers a new dimension in quality to documentation, evaluation and analysis.’
