3 CCD Cooled Digital Color Camera
3CCD Cooled Digital Color Camera
▲ Rear cable mount model (Type number : C7780-20)
The ORCA-3CCD cooled digital color camera incorporates
three cooled CCD chips, providing the rapid readout, high
resolution and superior S/N ratio of the Hamamatsu ORCA
digital camera series. The three color CCDs employ an RGB
prism to achieve extremely high quality color representation
without color blur, a performance difficult to achieve with a
single-CCD camera. The CCDs used are the same as those
used in the ORCA series, providing proven high quantum
efficiency and high resolution, cooled to 0 °C for high
sensitivity detection. It is suitable for a wide range of
applications, from brightfield (i.e., stained pathological
specimens) to fluorescent specimens using GFP and
fluorescent antibodies.

High performance R, G, and B separation
The ORCA-3CCD incorporates three color CCDs with a RGB prism to
achieve color separation superior to that available with a conventional single
CCD with mosaic filter for microscope use.
Trichrome stained DAPI (blue), BODIPY FL (green), and MitoTracker (red)
specimens were observed simultaneously using a D-F-T triple band mirror
cassette. Separation of the color image into B, G, and R revealed admixture
of BODIPY FL (green) fluorescence in the B (blue) and R (red) channels
when using the single CCD with mosaic filter; however when the ORCA3CCD was used, skillful matching of the fluorescent dyes with the
wavelength separation prism achieved excellent color separation.

Total 4.13 million pixels
The use of three color CCDs in the ORCA-3CCD eliminates the deterioration
in B (blue) and R (red) resolution which tends to occur with single color CCDs.
The high spatial resolution of approximately 1.3 mega pixels for each of the R,
G, and B channels allows acquisition of highly detailed fluorescent images.
Cooling temperature of 0 ˚C
The ORCA-3CCD employs Hamamatsu's own cooling technology* to lower
the temperature of the CCDs to 0 ˚C. This significantly reduces the noise
characteristics often associated with long exposures, thus allowing
observation of faint levels of fluorescence.
