The first camera performing better than the direct view !
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Imaging under bright field and fluorescence microscopy

"Using this recent model of Leica camera (DFC7000 T) I could note, for the first time in my pluriannual experience in microscopy, a net improvement of the acquired image, compared to the direct observation of the specimen. I am fully satisfied with the performances of this model!"

The Leica DFC7000 T 2.8 MP Color Microscope Camera is exceptionally well suited for both brightfield and fluorescence imaging.

It constitutes a paradigm shift with image quality that has not been possible with this class of CCD cameras before. An outstanding design combines the resolution and sensitivity you need and enables you to achieve the best possible result without changing cameras, switching ports, and calibration settings.

The Leica DFC7000 T spares users the need to change cameras during their experiments, since it is designed for brightfield and fluorescence applications alike.

Two factors enable users to observe extremely large fields of view: First, the camera sensor which features 2.8 Megapixels with a pixel pinch of 4.54 µm. Secondly, Leica Microsystems’ latest generation objectives with low magnification and high-numerical aperture objectives. It is the combination of the two that enlarges the field of view to speed up applications like tile scans.

Up to 40 live frames per second at full resolution – in high speed mode, enables you to position and focus samples effortlessly without any time delays. They can capture real-time, high-speed time-lapse recordings easily to collect precise kinetic data labeled with accurate time stamps. And if you need to be really fast, you can achieve up to 120 frames per second in 5 x 5 binning mode.

Fluorescence documentation takes advantage of crisp fluorescent signals against a dark background. The Leica DFC7000 T performs multi-color fluorescence imaging even at low light conditions: Peltier cooling of the sensor, correlated pixel double-sampling, and the optional Black Balance function to reduce unwanted noise.

The challenge of stained specimens is to display the colors as close to reality as possible. The Leica DFC7000 T blazes new trails with its color interpolation technology as it is based on an innovative 5 x 5 demosaicing algorithm.

Integration of systems provides users confidence that all components will work together smoothly in their experiments. The Leica DFC7000 T accomplishes a perfect integration: It works seamlessly with Leica Microsystems’ software platforms to support a broad range of applications: with Leica Application Suite (LAS) for basic image acquisition and material analysis, and with LAS X, the highly modular, powerful software platform, for acquisition and analysis.


Applications:

Brightfield applications:

  • Excellent color fidelity to discern subtle color differences
  • Reproducible color settings at any time
  • High-speed live preview for smooth focusing

Fluorescence applications:

  • Excellent signal-to-noise ratio – crisp and clear fluorescence signal against dark background
  • High sensitivity reduces sample bleaching and phototoxicity
  • Fast time-lapse imaging with accurate time stamps
  • Leading-edge trigger capability for efficient interplay of all microscope components
