SPOT Pursuit™ USB Camera Spot Pursuit USB digital camera for live cell imaging and fluorescence microscopy

Camera for Live Cell Imaging and Fluorescence

The SPOT Pursuit USB camera was designed for live cell imaging and fluorescence microscopy. It delivers high sensitivity and fast frame rates to help preserve live cells and fading specimens. Excellent temporal resolution and low read noise ensure superior image quality and precise data integrity.

The versatile Pursuit camera is available in monochrome, color mosaic, and slider models that provide both unfiltered monochrome and high resolution color imaging with one camera. All models come with the easy to use SPOT Basic software to get you started quickly.

The Pursuit camera is optimal for live cell imaging, ion ratio experiments, particle tracking, and fluorescent protein imaging (GFP, YFP), but it can also be used for fixed cell fluorescence, phase contrast/DIC and brightfield microscopy applications.
