MITO2 Microscope Ready Digital Camera
Instec’s MITO2 camera system integrates digital image acquisition and time-temperature recording into a convenient package for use with Instec’s microscope hot and cold stages and plates. USB communication and passive cooling make the MITO2 camera a fast and robust option for adding digital image acquisition to any optical microscope. Using our WinDV software, each sample image is stamped with the sample temperature, time and date, and experiment notes provided by the user. Captured images are also software indexed to allow for easy sorting and movie creation. WinDV’s features include temperature-triggered image capture (convenient for generating clean and precise temperature-property data), live video feed for positioning samples, easy snap capture for single images, and all of the temperature control features normally found in our WinTemp software.
• USB 2.0 communication
• Real time image monitoring and image capture
• Temperature-triggered image capture for easy collection of temperature-property data
• C-mount microscope connection standard
• 1.92 megapixel UXGA resolution
• WinDV software overlays sample temperature, time & date, and other experiment notes directly onto the digital images when interfaced with an Instec temperature controller
