Excelis™ MPX-20RC

Catalog #:AU-20RC-CMOS

Quick Overview

The new Excelis™ MPX-20RC color camera delivers excellent color performance and superb low-light sensitivity for microscopy imaging in research applications.  A Sony Exmor™ back-illuminated CMOS sensor is at the core of the MPX-20RC and incorporates cooling technology borrowed from much more expensive scientific CMOS cameras. The result is a high resolution color camera with fast frame rates that is truly suitable for both brightfield and fluorescence imaging. The large 1" sensor delivers a massive 20MP image for viewing fine detail in samples. Lightning fast data transfer across a USB 3.0 cable ensures stunning live views of the specimen.  The new CaptaVision+ software also brings a new dimension to imaging with real-time stitching, real-time intelligent flatfield correction, depth of field fusion, dynamic measurements, and much more!
