The AxioCam ERc 5s microscope camera can be operated via AxioVision in the conventional way, but it also works as a stand-alone imaging station.
This ZEISS camera acquires color images with 5 megapixels and stores them on memory cards in the economical and widely used SD format.
The AxioCam ERc 5s is operated simply via two easily accessible buttons: one triggers the acquisition of the image, while the other performs the automatic white balance. If you subsequently wish to transfer your images to a PC, all you need to do is insert the SD card into the memory card slot on your PC.
The AxioCam ERc 5s is compatible with all Carl Zeiss microscopes, making it possible for every microscope to be transformed, cost-effectively, into a full-fledged, mobile imaging station. This means that you can organize your laboratory processes much more flexibly than before, as you can decide which instrument you want to use to acquire images of your samples and where you do so. With our camera, troublesome tangled cables are a thing of the past.
