Olympus America's Olympus DP26 high-resolution microscope camera is now available as a stand-alone unit that can be used without a PC connection.
The new control unit is the latest enhancement to a camera that has impacted the way imaging is done in clinical research and educational laboratories. The camera incorporates a five-megapixel scientific-grade progressive scan CCD sensor, and features high sensitivity and accurate color reproduction. The easy-to-use camera allows users to handle all routine image caption functions with a one-touch controller.
The stand-alone system makes it easy for multiple users to share images and make annotations; in addition, the unit can link to a projector for conferences and more. Specimen images are easy to capture and can be saved in a variety of ways, including through USB or to a password-protected LIS network, all without the necessity for file transfer protocol interfaces, Web browsers, or other steps.
The DP26 can capture seven frames per second without the distorting effects of interlaced scan digital cameras.
