AmScope MU Series 5.0MP Color Global-Shutter CMOS USB 3.0 Microscope Camera

SKU: MU503-GS

Availability: In Stock

Regular price $1,653.99 $1,240.49

Key Features

  • Highly-sensitive color 5MP USB 3.0 camera for microscopy
  • Cutting-edge global-shutter CMOS technology provides better precision in capturing subjects in motion
  • High responsivity improves quality and reduces capture times for fluorescence and darkfield applications
  • Professional software for PC with extensive imaging tools specific to microscopy
  • Includes calibration slide for on-screen measurements

High sensitivity, speed, and global-shutter scanning are the hallmarks of this camera. The MU503-GS uses Sony's cutting-edge 5-megapixel global-shutter CMOS sensor for high resolution with high quantum-efficiency. Using a 2/3" optical format, larger pixels can be used to increase well-capacity, improving sensitivity and dynamic-range. This translates to shorter exposure-times, lower noise, and the ability to better capture faint emissions. The global shutter improves imaging of moving subjects through simultaneous pixel-capture, avoiding the focal-plane distortion seen in rolling-shutter sensors. With a maximum framerate of 88fps, a new level of responsiveness will be seen during live-viewing.

With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, this camera package is a multi-platform imaging solution. The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. With the ability to calibrate scales at multiple magnifications, the software can be used for multi-level inspection. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while simultaneously capturing high-definition images. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version of the software which can capture video and still images, and includes limited processing features.
