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

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 Routine Cameras
Excellent color reproduction and high resolution are the distinguishing features of the cameras of the ProgRes®CCD Routine range.

With up to 7 mega pixels resolution, these microscope cameras are ideal tools for high quality image documentation and elementary image analysis. To facilitate precise focusing and positioning of specimens, a fast live image up to a rate of 50 fps is available in high resolution.


  • Perfect color reproduction
  • Excellent image quality
  • High resolution & fast live image

Strong, Simple, Ingenious

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.
