The Olympus DP72 Microscope Digital Camera combines high-resolution image capture and transfer rates with Adobe RGB image display for high-fidelity color reproduction for research and clinical applications.
The DP72 captures a 12.8 megapixel, 4140 x 3096, full-resolution image with outstanding color fidelity, clarity, and detail in under 2.5 seconds, and can capture streams of high-resolution live images at 15 frames per second (fps). It offers a choice of Adobe RGB and sRGB displays for broader color reproduction and enhanced performance, a PCI-Express (PCI-E) interface for faster uncompressed image transfer (24 bit), and optional laptop connectivity.
With its brilliant color reproduction, the camera is optimized for researchers doing fluorescence imaging with dimly fluorescing specimens and for pathologists, who require the best possible color fidelity for diagnostic purposes, accordin to the company.
The DP72 achieves 12.8-million-pixel resolution with pixel shifting technology. It is cooled by a Peltier element to a maximum of Ta-10?. With its high-sensitivity 2/3 inch 1.45 million pixel CCD, equivalent 1600 ISO sensitivity, low noise, and piezoelectric motor, it provides fast, reliable performance.
Adobe RGB is a color space with far broader color reproduction than sRGB, as defined by the international IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standard. Although color in every region is broadened, colors in the cyan/green region are particularly enhanced with Adobe RGB performance, making the camera a good choice for live cell imaging.
Uncompressed, fast image transfer is available using PCI-E, a serial transfer interface that allows much faster data transfer, particularly for large, uncompressed image files. With this interface, connectivity to a PC laptop is available.
The camera’s software, which can also be used to operate Olympus motorized microscopes, is intuitive and helps streamline workflow with a customizable toolbar for enhanced control over image acquisition and management. Measurement functions and image stitching are available. The DP72 features a standard C-mount for attachment to most microscopes.
