These cameras offer features for high quality imaging through the microscope; particularly for low light level work.

Ultra Low read-out noise

Red: MDC-C1.3F camera
Blue & Grey: conventional CCD cameras
The read-out noise is suppressed to 3-5 less than conventional CCD cameras.


Excellent Quantum efficiency

Conventional CCD cameras have quantum efficiency in the range of 40% to 60%.

The MDC-C1.3F is 67%

Dynamic Range

The low read-out noise and high fill-well capacity enables the MDC-C1.3F camera’s dynamic range to reach 4500:1. This is 50% higher than many professional CCD cameras range of 3000:1.
This enables the finest details to be displayed in the darkest and lightest areas of an image
