Jenoptik completes portfolio of microscope cameras

From September 2016, the PROGRES GRYPHAX® KAPELLA, RIGEL and PROKYON cameras will complete Jenoptik's USB 3.0 product series, making it an attractive option for scientific use.

The new microscope cameras in the PROGRES GRYPHAX® series have been developed specifically for scientific applications in difficult lighting conditions. They are equipped with the latest CMOS sensor technology. With this development, Jenoptik has a USB 3.0 camera portfolio with which every microscope can be upgraded to become a modern, digital workspace.

Scientists working with poorly illuminated or weakly transmitting samples will benefit from the wide-ranging capabilities of the CMOS sensors used. The high level of quantum efficiency and the considerable dynamic range, coupled with very low noise, are properties that set new standards. Active sensor cooling for exposure times of up to two minutes is no longer required.

The PROGRES GRYPHAX® KAPELLA is a sensitive color camera for challenging samples and lighting conditions. It offers scientific users a new level of image dynamics and richness of detail. The PROGRES GRYPHAX® RIGEL is the monochrome counterpart to the KAPELLA and is the most sensitive camera in the entire portfolio.

The PROGRES GRYPHAX® PROKYON camera, the flagship of the PROGRES GRYPHAX® range, combines the best properties of all the models. It is the perfect all-round camera, capable of dealing with all aspects of microscopy through its image resolution of between 2.3 and 20.7 megapixels. Jenoptik is thereby continuing to invest in microscanning and color co-site sampling technologies. True colors can now be determined at speeds never previously achieved.

The operating software included is tailored precisely to the requirements and workflows of the user. With its especially short operating paths, the multifluorescence tool facilitates work in such applications. The software can be installed quickly and is operated in the same way on different computer operating systems such as Macintosh, Windows and Linux OS. Use is intuitive and therefore simple, giving users maximum flexibility when it comes to upgrading their microscopes.

All PROGRES GRYPHAX® microscope cameras are available now.
