Mightex Fluorescence Microscopy Cameras

Mightex Fluorescence Microscopy Cameras

Mightex C-series CCD USB 2.0 area cameras provide higher-sensitivity than CMOS cameras. They are optimized for fluorescence imaging, and they can also be used for a wide-variety of other microscopy applications where quality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness are crucial. These cameras have external trigger-in and strobe-out. A USB command set protocol is provided for non-Windows based applications. A Linux drive is also available upon request.

Applications:

  • Live-cell fluorescence imaging
  • Fluorescent protein imaging
  • Ratiometric imaging
  • Immunofluorescence imaging
  • Phase contrast, DIC, & bright-field
