DP80 microscopy camera

Share this on social media:

Olympus' DP80 is a microscopy camera for both colour documentation and fluorescence detection, combining a colour and monochrome chip within the same housing.

The DP80 provides high resolution brightfield imaging alongside sensitive photon detection, with rapid and automatic exchange between the two different chips.

The camera also has the capacity to overlay images from the two sensors, with an accurate pixel-to-pixel correspondence, presenting opportunities for joint colour and fluorescent imaging.

This feature provides assurance in both research and clinical environments, for example when combining histological staining with fluorescent dyes on the same sample.

The DP80 has a maximum resolution of 12.5 megapixels, a 1.4 megapixel monochrome sensor, exposure times of up to 60 seconds and a top speed of 57fps.
