Should I buy a color or monochrome CCD?

IDEX Health & Science offers both. Color CCDs are great for applications with plenty of light (bright field microscopy) or applications requiring simultaneous exposure of all colors. For low-light scientific applications where the image is acquired through external filters (e.g. emission filters), a monochrome CCD is the best choice.
