Zeiss Axiocam MR Series

Axio MR Series

Fluorescence and color imaging at a sensible price

Low-intensity fluorescences, living organisms and the finest color graduations– the image quality of the AxioCam MR clearly exceeds that of other monochrome and color CCD cameras.

With a dynamic range of more than 1:2200, the highly sensitive 2/3” CCD sensor acquires up to 14 images per second in full resolution. You can then process and publish the images using the Zen Light imaging software provided.

For applications in fluorescence microscopy, we recommend the AxioCam MRm monochrome variant – for maximum resolution without color interpolation and without a light-reducing filter mask


• Highly sensitive 2/3″ CCD image sensor

• 3×12 Bit color depth

• Fast live image with up to 31 frames/second

• Expanded spectral range *

• Near infrared sensitivity *

• Higher resolution and more sensitive due to image sensor without filter mask *

* Applies to AxioCam MRm only

As true to color and versatile as nature itself

Document your results with brilliant color accuracy. The AxioCam MRc acquires color and brightness gradations with 12 bit resolution and a dynamic range of 1:2200 – all for an astonishingly good price. The camera’s fast live image is updated up to 31 times per second. This means you can find your way around and focus on large-surface or living samples in next to no time.

Fluorescence Imaging – Great performance in low light

With its 6.45 µm x 6.45 µm pixels, the AxioCam MR sensor is extremely light-sensitive. Your delicate fluorescence samples are therefore protected thanks to the short exposure times that can be used. You obtain low-noise images in extraordinary quality.

Unlike a color camera, the AxioCam MRm does not use a light-reducing filter mask or an infrared barrier filter. This not only increases the sensitivity further, but there is also no need for color information to be interpolated. For you this means: images with 30 percent higher resolution than with a comparable color camera and anenhanced sensitivity spectrum into the near infrared.
