Micron CoolR ELSA

Research Cooled CCD Camera



sCMOS Camera with True Color

By combining their legendary color processing technology with the capabilities of the latest generation sCMOS sensors, Micron Optical have created a paradigm shift in color camera performance. The launch of the CoolR ELSA, thanks to its sensitivity, perfect color reproduction and impressive noise minimization, results in a new capability which has formerly been unavailable in the field of scientific imaging.








High Sensitivity Color or Black & White sCMOS Sensor

As a result of the breakthrough performance of the scientific grade CMOS sensor, the CoolR ELSA produces perfect images in very low light conditions, allowing for vastly reduced exposure times and corresponding high frame rates, whilst maintaining the richness of the image detail information. Two camera options are available, color or Black & White.



2e-Readout Noise

The readout noise of the ELSA camera is only 2e-, just one-third of existing CCD or CMOS cameras in the market. This delivers truly extraordinary signal-to-noise ratio and consistent image quality whether in bright field or dark field.

Outstanding 16-bit color reproduction, with unique user control

Inherited from the acclaimed Micron HD camera, the CoolR ELSA color processing is capable of a level of precision that imitates the color sensitivity of the human eye, producing extreme-high color definition. The 16-bit ADC guarantees the quality of image tone and detailed differences can be resolved so the monitor image is matched to the eyepiece view.





16-bit ISP image processor

The ELSA adopts an innovative 16-bit ISP image processor, with functions for high-definition image quality processing and fast output, to ensure high speed high quality images, with greater fidelity and precision.

Peltier Cooled Device






Understatement is our symbol of quality

Steady cooling leads to significantly lower dark current, improving the signal to noise ratio, which results in greatly improved sensitivity and image quality. The CoolR ELSA utilizes Peltier technology and achieves an operating temperature of -10°C resulting in extremely low and stable dark current. The ELSA delivers consistent image quality day after day. 



1.2 inch-larger field of view

The 1.2 inch chip offers microscope users a larger field of view, with a direct full frame observation experience.
