SPOT Idea CMOS Microscope Camera

The SPOT Idea digital microscope cameras are the next wave of high performance digital imaging systems for researchers, pathologists, scientists, and engineers. They produce high quality images with low noise for publication and documentation, and come with an attractive price. These easy-to-use color cameras are an excellent choice for pathology, as well as clinical, life and material science, educational and industrial applications.

The SPOT Idea cameras connect easily to any computer with a USB port. They provide a full screen live image window on the monitor to make panning through slides, focusing and setting exposure a snap. Publication-quality images are easily captured with the click of a button. The images are immediately available for printing, emailing, or adding annotations, measurements or scale bars within the included SPOT software – no media cards or downloading is required, saving you time and aggravation.

Idea cameras can be attached to any brand microscope, or they can be fitted with a macro lens for imaging on a tripod.
