DescriptionThe XC30 is similar to the UC30, but has the powerful benefits of Peltier cooling. As a result of the cooling, the performance of the XC30 is perfectly balanced in terms of background noise and color fidelity via OTC. This is especially relevant to pathology and histology applications. The versatile CCD can also be used for high-intensity fluorescence.
Features and Benefits
SpecificationsThe Peltier cooling mechanism maintains the CCD chip at a constant 10 ˚C (at 25° ambient temperature) to guarantee perfect color images that are rich in contrast, with excellent color fidelity and extremely low background noise. The cooling also enables the exposure range to be expanded to cover 100 μs–160 s.
The 2.080 x 1.544-pixel CCD chip offers 14 bit analog digital conversion and can be switched between various frame rates for easier use. As well as the 2x and 3x pixel binning capabilities, the XC30 also offers a partial-readout mode where a segment of the entire field of view can be defined by the user and only this image segment is read out by the camera. This enables faster focusing and imaging of the features of interest, within the field of view.
As with the UC30, the XC30 can be fully operated using the Olympus imaging software families. This makes it both easy and quick to use to its maximum capacity, ensuring that it provides the best solution to all challenges including image labelling, commenting and archiving, report generation and emailing.
