Given the Group’s outstanding success story, it’s natural to prick up your ears when you hear the name "Carl Zeiss". As the only manufacturer worldwide to offer light, x-ray and electron microscopy systems from a single source, Zeiss Microscopy boasts a comprehensive portfolio for research and routine applications as well as life and material sciences. Besides its renowned light, laser scanning, x-ray, electron and ion microscopes, this specialist’s product range also includes software control systems that make appreciably lighter work of capturing and processing images. Zeiss Microscopy even runs its own development labs to make sure progress in microscopy technology never comes to a halt - as the launch of the new ZEISS Axiocam 305 mono recently proved afresh.

An innovative five-megapixel camera for high-resolution imaging at fast speeds, the ZEISS Axiocam 305 mono features state-of-the-art CMOS global shutter technology that enables users to read and capture samples with pinpoint precision. Its creators explain that its high dynamic range and low noise make it possible to depict varying contrasts and intensities in a single frame, with a dark homogeneous background bringing out even the finest structural details. If required, the camera can expose and store up to 36 frames a second at maximum resolution. What's more, the exceptional camera technology onboard the ZEISS Axiocam 305 mono, with its highly responsive and temperature-stabilized sensor, never fails to deliver reproducible, intense results with low noise. Finally, user-friendly ZEN imaging software can be linked to the camera quickly and easily via a USB 3.0 port to access a wide range of useful processing features via an intuitive interface.
