Zeiss, Oberkochen, Germany, has introduced four new high-quality complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) cameras to support digital imaging in light microscopy. The cameras complete the portfolio of Zeiss Axiocam models:

  • The Axiocam 705 color and 712 color deliver the best possible image quality for histology, pathology, or materials research and analysis, thanks to excellent color rendition and greatly improved dynamic range.
  • The Axiocam 705 mono and 712 mono are ideal for demanding fluorescence live-cell imaging, with fast frame rates and high dynamic range. Also, their extended near-infrared sensitivity allows for deeper insights into sample structures.

The Axiocam 705 mono and Axiocam 705 color are five-megapixel cameras optimized for fast speed and high dynamic range. The Axiocam 712 mono and Axiocam 712 color are 12-megapixel cameras that are especially suited for the acquisition of large samples, with greatly reduced need for image stitching.

Small 3.45 µm pixels and low noise levels, in combination with the fast USB 3.0 platform, enable researchers to carry out extremely fast imaging experiments while maintaining excellent signal quality. Also, the new cameras’ global shutter architecture allows the capture of dynamic samples without motion artifacts.
