ProgRes® Digital Microscope Cameras provide excellent image quality and fast live images  ProgRes Research 1

The digital microscope cameras of the ProgRes® family are based on more than two decades experience in development and production of high-end solutions for digital imaging.

The ProgRes® CMOS and CCD cameras are suitable for all contrast methods in light microscopy and can be easily integrated into each laboratory via C-Mount and USB 2.0/ FireWire interfaces.

ProgRes® cameras are aimed to provide rapid frame rates while keeping the power consumption at low levels – all this in the sense of a Green Microscopy Approach and for the sake of our environment

The exact reproduction of colors and display of finest details due to high resolutions of the ProgRes® cameras grant their outstanding applicability for demanding analysis and reliable documentation. High frame rates provide fast live images, thus offering easy workflow and convenient use.

The optionally cooled ProgRes® research grade cameras in color and monochrome have been optimized for the tasks in scientific areas and meet the high requirements of low-light applications!

CCD Research Cameras  ProgRes Research 2

All color and monochrome cameras of the ProgRes® CCD Research camera range have been optimized for applications in exacting tasks. Especially when working with low-light specimens the high sensitivity of these models warrants brilliant images.

Expeditious and smooth operation is provided by sensitive CCD sensors, optionally available with cooling, offering high frame rates and a broad dynamic range.

The sophisticated Microscanning technology provided in the scanning ProgRes® cameras allows for capturing images of up to 12.5 mega pixels, even in true color.


  • Perfect, reproducible color reproduction
  • Outstanding image quality
  • High sensitivity combined with a broad dynamic range
  • Highest resolution & fast live image

Strong, Simple, Ingenious   ProgRes Research 3

Whether for simple image documentation or demanding image analysis: with merely three mouse clicks you can optimize your images - thanks to the automatic functions included in ProgRes® CapturePro software.
