Manufacturer of highly sensitive cameras for bioscience, inspection, and analysis, Dage-MTI (Michigan City, IN), has introduced a near-infrared (NIR) camera, the IR-1000, for applications that require high sensitivity in the NIR wavelength range. To provide optimum contrast, the real-time CCD camera includes electronics that will automatically and instantaneously readjust when a scene changes. This is useful when changing magnification levels, specimens, and/or lighting levels. The camera’s real-time edge enhancement feature sharpens the edges and delivers a clearer picture. The 1/2-inch sensor features a 5x increase in sensitivity at 900nm. This real-time camera is ideal for applications such as electrophysiology, infrared differential interference contrast (IR-DIC), failure analysis, forensics, and semiconductor inspection.

PRESS RELEASE

Michigan City, IN – Dage-MTI, a leading manufacturer of highly sensitive cameras for bioscience, inspection, and analysis, introduces a near-infrared (NIR) camera for applications that require high sensitivity in the NIR wavelength range. The IR-1000 offers two important features: automatic contrast and real-time edge enhancement.

To provide optimum contrast, the new real-time CCD camera includes electronics that will automatically and instantaneously readjust when a scene changes. This innovative design is especially useful when changing magnification levels, specimens, and/or lighting levels. For added flexibility, the user has continuous access to the manual gain and may also engage the camera’s black-level control to achieve specific grey-scale contrast.

The camera’s real-time edge enhancement feature sharpens the edges and delivers a clearer picture by resolving fine details in the image. With enhanced sensitivity across the visible and infrared spectral wavelength, the 1/2-inch sensor features a 5x increase in sensitivity at 900nm. With the enhanced sensitivity, the camera can detect cells in low light conditions; the extended IR response allows deeper penetration into tissue sections (e.g. brain slices) for further analysis. The high gain of the camera enables the user to detect images in real-time (30 frames per second) even when energy levels are low.

With a convenient C-mount, the IR-1000 is widely used in “live” mode, connected directly to a monitor. An optional computer interface board is also available. Dage-MTI’s new real-time camera is ideal for applications such as electrophysiology, infrared differential interference contrast (IR-DIC), failure analysis, forensics, and semiconductor inspection.
