PROGRES GRYPHAX® – comparison
All camera comparisons are based on results of our JENOPTIK digital image laboratory. The quality of
our cameras is proven by spectral measurement at our laboratory and is based on guidelines of
EMVA 1288 standard.
Comparison of PROGRES GRYPHAX® PROKYON
Refine your microscope workstation
The flagship PROGRES GRYPHAX® PROKYON replaces all
pixel shift microscope cameras.
PROGRES GRYPHAX® PROKYON is the premium solution for highest demands on color reproduction
in all microscopy applications. It is powered by a 1/1.2” back-illuminated CMOS sensor made by
SONY.
This camera provides fast live images, with global shutter technology, high dynamic range and nonvisible noise. Reach up to 60 fps in full sensor resolution combined with the brilliant Jenoptik color
reproduction. Maximum details are visible at true color images done with 2, 9 or 21 MPix record
mode.
Within this comparison we take a look at the ProgRes® C14plus compared to PROGRES GRYPHAX®
PROKYON, the successor of the most color ProgRes® research CCD cameras.

With a conventional front-illumination structure, the metal wiring and transistors on the surface of the silicon substrate that form the
sensor's light-sensitive area (photo-diode) impede photon gathering carried out by the on-chip lens, and this has also been an important
issue in the miniaturization of pixels and widening optical angle response. A back-illuminated structure minimizes the degradation of
sensitivity to optical angle response, while also increasing the amount of light that enters each pixel due to the lack of obstacles such as
metal wiring and transistors that have been moved to the reverse of the silicon substrate. However, compared to conventional frontilluminated structures, back-illuminated structures commonly causes problems such as noise, dark current, defective pixels and color
mixture that lead to image degradation and also cause a decrease in the signal-to-noise ratio. To overcome this Sony has developed a
unique photo-diode structure and on-chip lens optimized for back-illuminated structures, that achieves a higher sensitivity and a lower
random noise without light by reducing noise, dark current and defect pixels compared to the conventional front-illuminated structure.
Additionally, Sony's advanced technologies such as high-precision alignment have addressed any color mixture problems.
