Clinical Microscopy Propelled by Technology

Clinical Microscopy (Urinalysis, Fecalysis and Body Fluids) may not be the most glamorous occupation in the medical field. However, the crucial role it plays in medical diagnosis is driving the demand for better imaging technology. Toshiba is stepping up to the challenge with the JCS-HR5U FHD, USB 3.0 Microscopy Camera.


The new JCS-HR5U camera represents an essential advancement in clinical microscopy imaging applications. The ultra-compact, full HD video camera features both HDMI and SuperSpeed USB image outputs for simultaneous, real-time live viewing from a monitor plus high-res image capture to a computer. It is optimal for color documentation systems integration in the fields of bioimaging, scientific imaging, and live tissue imaging.



JCS-HR5U Key Features:

  • HDMI 1080p / 1080i output at 59.94Hz
  • USB 3.0 1080p output at 59.94 fps maximum
  • Simultaneous live view and USB output
  • F10 sensitivity rivals three-chip camera performance
  • 1/2.8″ progressive-scan color CMOS sensor
  • 12-color channel matrix adjustment
  • Gamma correction
  • Ultra-compact (approx. 1.75″ x 1.75″ x 3″) one-piece system
  • 5 User-programmable settings files
  • Integrates with PC for image capture and streaming (not provided)
  • C-mount lens mount
  • Digital crosshair lines
  • Camera control via UVC 1.1

Creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention is propelling imaging technologies to achieve the unthinkable. Soon, the ease of full-body scans (inside and outside) will be akin to laying on a table for two minutes and having a light run up down your body. Unfortunately, we do not have the capability at the moment. Nevertheless, Toshiba’s JCS-HR5U Microscopic Camera is taking imaging technology one step closer to what science fiction exhibits.
