For which applications can I use the DMC6200 vs other fluorescence cameras?
When you need to capture images in color as well as images of samples with bright fluorescence signals like DAPI, GFP or mCherry. The camera can deliver 8 and 16 bit images in color and B&W and is therefore suitable for all imaging tasks which require a large dynamic range.
On which microscope types can I use this camera?
The camera is equipped with a c-mount interface, the microscope standard for vision systems. Therefore, it can be mechanically attached to every microscope, macroscope or stereo microscope when the correct magnification of the c- mount adapter is used. Electronically the camera is fitted with a USB 3 interface for data and power, which can be connected to pretty much every PC on the market. The camera also comes with the core version of our Leica Application Suite, allowing you to capture and store images with ease.
What settings do I need to use to ensure I get images with best resolution?
Usually activating Auto Exposure Mode or selecting the profile for a special illumination condition is sufficient. If you use non Leica illumination a white balance on a grey surface is recommended for best possible color reproduction.
