     Are you talking about color or b&w?

     I used the Zeiss Axiocam in Texas, and was reasonably happy with it,
     although they actually recomend a b&w digital camera for fluorescence (not
     much use if using two fluorochromes - go figure!). GREY LEVELS.
     Howver, I was much more impressed with the Optronix camera; its resolution
     with low level fluorescence was much greater. Not sure who the agents are
     for it now, I beleive it was Meyer Instruments based in Houston, TX

       Is anyone using digital photography for immunofluorescence
       performed on
       tissue sections?  If so, what type of system are using and how
       is the equipment?  Thanks!
