Product Description

The Ample Scientific TCC-3.3ICE-N camera microscope is a 3.3-megapixel (MP), scientific-grade, charge-coupled device (CCD) digital camera for microscopes, with 3.46 x 3.46 micron pixels, a 12-bit color RGB Bayer filter, an angle control light function, and a standard C-mount interface. This digital camera for microscopes enhances object or image resolution, and can display an image on a monitor. It is commonly used for education, medical and scientific research, and for industry documentation.

This high-resolution, 3.3 MP microscope camera features a Sony charge-coupled device (CCD) color image sensor to manage noise reduction and image quality. It is used with trinocular ports and eyepieces, and connects with a 2.58-meter USB 2.0 cable. It is Peltier-cooled to -30 degrees C below ambient temperature, for images with low noise, even at long exposures. Automatic and manual adjustment capabilities are available. Program controls include image size, gain, brightness, exposure time and RGB. It has image processing capabilities of crop, contrast, mirror, invert, rotate, flip, length, area, and angle light control measurement. The camera also comes with a driver installation CD with image capture and processing software, and a protective aluminum carrying case.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying viewing abilities. A trinocular eyepiece is used to output digital images to an internal or external device such as a camera or monitor. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also use LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

Ample Scientific LLC manufactures laboratory equipment and supplies such as microscopes and centrifuges. Founded in 2009, and headquartered in Norcross, GA, Ample Scientific offers scientific equipment for research, educational, clinical and industrial applications.
