Basler enhances its PowerPack for Microscopy to address the challenging requirements of fluorescence imaging. The Microscopy Ace 2.3 MP Mono camera offers a resolution of 2.3 MP combined with high sensitivity thanks to its large pixel size. The Microscopy Ace 5.1 MP Mono scores with an ideal balance between high resolution (5.1 MP), large pixel size and low noise level.
An important factor in fluorescence applications is the use of low light emissions to reduce the risk of photobleaching the sample. These cameras provide high quantum efficiency and sensitivity to take images even in low light. Besides suitable frame rates, both cameras deliver a high dynamic range for recording the differentiation between subject and background. The included Microscopy Software has released its 2.0 version: the graphical user interface can be switched to dark skin mode to reduce the light emissions from the display toward the sample. This feature also reduces user eye fatigue and stress when working in a dark environment.
To make fluorescence imaging more convenient and to save the user´s time, the software has also been enhanced with colour presets for the most common fluorescence markers. For quick access, these presets can be activated with a single click and configured to individual needs. Images still remain as greyscale for further processing in other applications or can be saved as a colour version.
