ffTATM- high resolution microscope imaging

Imaging in the Visible Range
ffTATM allows with up to 5 MPIX camera resolution to use the Leica DM2500 microscope to save high resolution images oif microscopic evidence. The bandwidth covers the full visible range from  400  to 700nm.

A suitable image capture and enhancement software package enables the user to place two images next to each otehr for comparison, to superimpose two images or to switch between the two images. The software is very intuitive and user friendly. Video functions as image rotation or mirroring as well as grey scale conversion and various contrast, despecle and measuring functions make the software a versatile tool. 

Users of teh VSC Suite software package from our range of document examination systems will re-recognise many of the control functions and become accustomed very fast. 

Fluorescence Imaging
Also available for the ffTATM system are special metal halide and a mercury vapour lamps which allow the creation of fluorescent images. 
This optional add-on does not only allow high quality imaging but also in combination with the spectroscopy module recording of fluorescence spectra for the fast analysis of organic componds.

Light Polarisation
Primarily used for the examination of the cross polar birefringence of fibres, the ffTA PolarisedLight Module can also be used for the analysis of chemical crystals (e.g. caffeine) rocks and minerals.
By taking a measurement of the samples diameter and the colour retardation of the decomposed light, unknown materials can be identified against the interefrence colour chart (pictured inset). The ffTA Light Polarisation Module consists of a linear polariser mounted on the condenser lens, a second polariser (the analyser) placed in the optical pathway before the observation tubes and camera, and a retardation plate to enhance optical path differences between the cross-polarisers.
