Spot RT3 Slider

Switches from color to quantitative monochrome instantly

The Spot RT3 Slider digital camera system from Diagnostic Instruments, Sterling Heights, Mich, combines high performance and FireWire connectivity. The system boasts improved optical color rendering, particularly when used with Spot Imaging software featuring Correct Color Technology/ICC color profiling. The performance of the RT3 Slider, along with the built-in flexibility of both color and monochrome imaging in one camera, makes this a good camera for core laboratory imaging needs. Switching from color mode to quantitative monochrome mode is as easy as sliding a lever. Low-read noise combined with the deep pixel wells of its Kodak KAI 2020 CCD make this a sensitive imaging system. With effective differential cooling of –43°C and improved CCD sensor design, dark current has been reduced under 0.003 e/p/s, which means it also works well for fluorescence imaging.
