The XM10 monochrome camera offers dependable gray scale value and fluorescence microscopy images: high resolution, extremely fine sensitivity, a cooled CCD chip, variable exposure times and an optional external trigger function.
All functions of the XM10 monochrome camera are controlled and operated via the modular OLYMPUS Stream image analysis software. No matter what current acquisition conditions are, real-time functions guarantee that the entire dynamic range is utilized. This ensures optimal contrast at all times. Following acquisition, XM10's total integration into OLYMPUS Stream image analysis software provides the full range of options and advantages of the latest in image processing and analysis, from image labeling to archiving and report generation.
The XM10 camera has a resolution of 1,376 x 1,032 pixels. Highly efficient readout technology (Correlated Double Sampling) coupled with Peltier-cooling of the CCD chip results in images of superior signal-to-noise ratio. Highly sensitive CCD elements are capable of detecting even the faintest signals. The electronic shutter offers variable exposure times ranging from 0.1 milliseconds to 160 seconds.
The high speed ADC (Analog-Digital Converter) working at a clock rate of 24 MHz in full 14-bit dynamic range is able to perform double sampling even at a readout rate of 24.5 MHz. Various frame rates are supported by this camera. For example, the camera can be set to acquire at a high frame rate of more than 15 fps at TV resolution using 2x binning. View your zoomed-in sample, locate the area of interest and focus - all conveniently onscreen. No longer are you forced to trade off speed for quality. For acquisition the system can switch automatically into the high-resolution mode for optimal performance.
FireWire-technology guarantees that the XM10 installation is easy on any PC or laptop equipped with a FireWire-port. FireWire-technology enables you to use multiple cameras on the same PC. The XM10 can be mounted onto all light microscopes with a C-mount adapter. Plus, you only need one cable for sending data and power to the PC's FireWire-port.
