Scitech releases EMCCD camera with photon sensitivity

Scitech introduces the Andor
iXon Ultra 888 megapixel, back-illuminated EMCCD camera designed for demanding
applications.

Offering single photon
sensitivity across a large field of view at 26 fps, the new Andor iXon Ultra
888 represents a massive performance boost for the largest available EMCCD
sensor, as well as the first USB 3.0 enabled EMCCD camera.

Designed to be the most flexible
and user-friendly EMCCD camera on the market, Andor iXon Ultra 888 can be optimised
for a wide variety of application requirements in a single click using the
OptAcquire feature.

Key features of the Andor iXon
Ultra 888 EMCCD cameras include 1024 x 1024 sensor format and 13 μm pixel size;
3x acceleration of pixel readout speed to 30MHz, while maintaining quantitative
stability, propelling the full frame performance to video rate; signal allowed
to be quantitatively calibrated in units of electrons or photons, either in
real time or post-processing; and patented technology offering automated
recalibration of EM gain, alongside anti-ageing protection.

Delivering superior resolving
power, field of view and unparalleled speed, the Andor iXon Ultra 888 EMCCD
cameras find application in single molecule detection; super-resolution
microscopy (PALM, STORM); TIRF microscopy; spinning disk confocal microscopy; vesicle
trafficking; ion signalling; cell motility; luminescence; FRET/FRAP; single
photon counting; and voltage sensitive dyes.
