1.4 Megapixel Fluorescent Microscope Camera MCX153

MCX153 is a 1.4 megapixel scientific  CCD microscope camera equipped with super highly sensitive Sony CCD ICX825. With a 16 Mb buffer memory, It offers high frame rates (20 frames per second). Thanks to a large format 2/3 inch CCD sensor, the MCX153 offers a large field of view. The robust multi-camera synchronization function makes it easy to work with 3 more Pixit cameras together. The CCD design ensures high-uniformity sensor output, a wide dynamic range and a lower noise environment, ideal for low-light and fluorescence microscopy.

Features

  • Low noise, high sensitivity and high frame rate

  • Research grade scientific camera

  • Built-in buffer memory, more stable data transimission

  • Multi-camera Synchronization, up to 4 cameras in 1 PC

  • Come with user-friendly capturing software Pixit Integrator

  • Twain and DirectShow driver compatible

  • Perfect dust-free structure and aluminum alloy body design

  • Compatible with Windows XP 32bit, Windows 7 ,Windows 8 and Windows 10

Sony EXview HAD CCD II ICX825 sensor - Super Sensitive

 

The sensitivity tells us how many precious photons will be converted to signal...this is were the new Sony ICX825 shines. But how much more sensitive is it? Compared with Lanoptik's Pixit MCX151 at 650nm, the mcx153 is 60% more sensitive. In fact, the MCX153 is even more sensitive than the already spectacular 460EX, making it the perfect camera for the enthusiast with a limited budget. The left graph below shows the striking difference between the ICX285 and ICX825.

* EXview HAD CCD II is a trademark of Sony Corporation. The EXview HAD CCD II is a CCD image sensor that realizes sensitivity (typical) of 1000 mV or more per 1 µm2 (Color:F5.6/BW:F8 in 1 s accumulation equivalent) and improves light efficiency by including near infrared light region as a basic structure of Sony's EXview HAD CCD™.

Applications

MCX153 is ideal for a wide range of applications including:

  • Robotics

  • Quality control

  • Inspection, surveillance

  • Industrial imaging

  • Machine vision

  • Logistics
