Nikon Europe B.V., innovator of advanced microscope systems today announced the release of the Digital Sight 10 Microscope Camera, which enables acquisition of both color and monochrome images with a resolution of 6K pixels across a large field of view using a single camera.
In life science research, there is a growing demand for digital microscope cameras able to acquire large volumes of data and observe fine structures. To meet these needs, Nikon has developed the Digital Sight 10 Microscope Camera that can acquire high-resolution images of 6K pixels (6000 x 3984 pixels) with a large field of view of 25 mm*1, which is optimized for microscope imaging by adopting CMOS image sensors in the Nikon FX format. The Digital Sight 10 is equipped with a color and monochrome mode switching function, making it capable of capturing both color and monochrome images with one unit. By combining this camera with NIS-Elements imaging software (sold separately), images can be acquired, displayed, and analyzed, and it can be used for a wide range of applications, including pathological diagnosis and drug discovery research.
*1 The size of the image that can be obtained from the microscope, measured at the intermediate image plane.
1. Supports both color and monochrome image acquisition with one unit
2. Capable of acquiring images with a large 25 mm field of view
3. High-resolution 6K images support localization analysis and microstructure observation
