Jenoptik extends range of low-light microscopy cameras

06 Sep 2016

Progres Gryphax Kapella, Rigel and Prokyon models based on USB 3.0, are specified for scientific use.

Jenoptik has announced the development of new microscope cameras to expand its Progres Gryphax range, which is designed for scientific applications in difficult lighting conditions. The cameras are equipped with the latest CMOS sensor technology.

With this development, Jenoptik says it is now offering a USB 3.0 camera portfolio "with which every microscope can be upgraded to become a modern, digital workspace,” adding, “ Scientists working with poorly-illuminated or weakly transmitting samples will benefit from the wide-ranging capabilities of the CMOS sensors. 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 designed for challenging samples and lighting conditions. The Progres Gryphax Rigel is the monochrome counterpart to the Kapella and is the most sensitive camera in the range.

Faster than ever

The Progres Gryphax Prokyon camera, the flagship of the range, combines the highest specification of all the models: it can deal with all aspects of microscopy through its image resolution of between 2.3 and 20.7 megapixels.

Jenoptik commented that it continues 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 designed for the requirements and workflows of scientific users. With its 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. Use is intuitive and therefore simple, giving users maximum flexibility when it comes to upgrading their microscopes.
