Jenoptik ProgRes CFcool CCD Microscope Monochrome Camera

Cambridge Scientific ID: 16967 Category: Tag:


The ProgRes CFcool microscope camera from Jenoptik was developed for scientific applications. Its extreme sensitivity guarantees crystal-clear color images even in low light.

The ProgRes CFcool guarantees images with a superior color reproduction and excellent image quality. This is enabled by Jenoptik color interpolation in combination with the extremely large, sensitive pixels and the14-bit color depth of the sensor. The microscope camera generates a fast live image. This makes it easier to focus and position your preparations.

Active sensor cooling makes the ProgRes® CFcool ideal for low-noise, long-time exposures. It is also ideal for applications using fluorescent substances.

This CCD research camera can also be combined with PROGRES GRYPHAX® microscope camera software. All operations can be observed immediately in the live image. This enables you to work more efficient at your microscope workstation.
