NEW: ProgRes® MFcool / ProgRes® CFcool
High Sensitivity: Both new camera models ProgRes® MFcool and ProgRes® CFcool offer high frame rates as well as high sensitivity and image quality, realized by integrated thermoelectric cooling and 14 bit digitization. Ideally suited for fluorescence microscopy.

(IEEE1394 Firewire, 14 bit, and 1.4 megapixels cooled mono/color CCD camera)
for all low-light applications such as flourescence microscopy

® MFcool/ProgRes® CFcool

The new monochrome microscope camera model ProgRes MFcool features 14 bit digitization as well as 1.4 megapixels resolution. These specs warrant detailled images and, combined with high frame rates up to 51 fps in diverse binning modes, care for your delicate fluorescence specimens.

As ProgRes CFcool the camera is also available as a color camera. 14 bit digitization combined with outstanding color reproducing capability this camera delivers brilliant images of high color fidelity. High frame rates and the time-lapse functionality integrated in the camera control software give of proof of the camera's capability.

What is more, the sensitivity and image quality for both cameras is improved by applying analog gain and thermoelectric cooling.

Following the interface concept of the ProgRes® series, both new cameras can be triggered by peripheral devices and can be integrated into any lab environment by means of C-Mount and IEEE1394 Firewire interfaces.

Using its C-Mount adaptor and the IEEE1394a Firewire interface the camera is easily attached to any microscope and any PC.

The ProgRes Capture Pro software suite included with the camera makes camera control even for the unexperienced user straightforward and comfortable.

Easy to Integrate
ProgRes cameras can be integrated in third party image archiving and image analysis software by means of the included Capture Basic TWAIN PlugIn or the available Software Development Kit (SDK).
