CAMERAS

Digital microscope cameras.

When conducting high resolution imaging of live cell samples and dynamic processes, a high speed, high resolution and high sensistivity sCMOS digital camera is essential.

Aurox has specially selected microscope digital cameras from PCO and Andor for use with the Clarity LFC and for imaging applications in confocal microscopy.
