EMCCD camera


The Evolve 512 Delta EMCC camera from Photometrics features a 512 x 512 e2c CCD97 EMCCD image sensor with a 16 µm pixel size, as well as 16-bit digitization, FireWire interface, 90% quantum efficiency, and can achieve a frame rate of up to 67 fps.

Photometrics recently launched its new "LightSpeed mode" for the camera, which maximizes image acquisition rates for dynamic live cell, high-speed events enabling frame rates of up to 2,400 fps. Demanding high-speed fluorescent light applications such as super-resolution and neural imaging require a camera capable of collecting data at least twice the rate at which these events occur. The new LightSpeed mode featured on the Evolve 512 Delta delivers significant improvements in frame rates by digitizing only relevant pixel regions within the field of view (FOV).

The camera is suitable for use in such high-speed applications as live cell imaging, super-resolution microscopy, single molecule fluorescence, and other scientific or medical imaging applications.

The Evolve 512 Delta EMCCD camera will be on display at the Photometrics booth at SPIE Photonics West 2015, February 10-12 in San Francisco, California.
