This new facility will streamline the image capture process and save valuable space in the laboratory, says Olympus. It thinks the new control unit will have a big impact on the way imaging

is done in clinical research and educational laboratories around the world.

The DP26 incorporates a 5Mp scientific-grade progressive scan CCD sensor, producing colours said to be true to life with high fidelity and accurate colour reproduction.

The ISO 400 sensitivity makes the DP26 suitable for phase-contrast microscopy or work involving darkly stained samples.

The camera can capture seven full frames per second, which are non-interlaced to avoid any distorting effects of interlaced scan digital cameras, and attaches to the microscope via a standard C-mount.

The camera is designed to be extremely easy to use, with the operator handling all routine image caption functions with a simple one-touch controller.

Specimen images can be saved in a variety of ways, including via USB or to a password-protected LIS network, without the necessity for file transfer protocol (FTP) interfaces, web browsers, or other intermediate steps.
