Brilliant and detailed fluorescence photography
The two-megapixel CCD sensor (pixel size 4.4 µm) guarantees excellent resolution of detail. The high dynamic range allows the acquisition of multicolor images in one shot without time-consuming overlay. There is a
choice of 40 MHz pixel clock rate for fast image readout or a 20 MHz pixel clock rate, ensuring low noise for top picture quality.
In low light conditions, photoelectric components have to be cooled so that the camera can produce noise-free pictures during long exposure times. That’s why the Leica DFC345 FX is equipped with one-stage Peltier cooling
for effective suppression of background noise. This, combined with the high resolution of detail, produces brilliant images rich in contrast – even for weak fluorescence signals.
Fully integrated for versatile application potential
The FireWire-B interface allows simple and reliable transfer of data to the computer without an additional power supply. The Leica DFC345 FX is fully integrated into the software platforms of Leica Microsystems: the modular
Leica Application Suite (LAS) for simple fluorescence documentation and image archiving, the user-friendly LAS AF for sophisticated, high speed fluorescence applications and Leica MM AF (powered by MetaMorph) for
