ORCA-Flash4.0 Scientific CMOS Camera
Featuring exceptional quantum efficiency and low noise, the ORCA-Flash4.0 scientific CMOS camera delivers better signal-to-noise characteristics than EM-CCDs, cooled CCDs, and first-generation scientific CMOS cameras. The ORCA-Flash4.0’s high sensitivity means extreme versatility. Now one camera covers a wide range of imaging needs—including super-resolution microscopy, TIRF microscopy, live cell GFP, high-speed calcium ion imaging, FRET, real-time confocal microscopy, and many more.
The ORCA-Flash4.0 has quantum efficiency values of over 70% at 600 nm and 50% at 750 nm, and has only 1.3 electrons of read noise (at 100 full-resolution frames per second). This unique combination of high quantum efficiency and low noise, in the absence of EM-CCD multiplicative noise, means that images are no longer limited by the camera. With 4.0 megapixels at 6.5 μm × 6.5 μm each, the ORCA-Flash4.0 is ideally formatted for demanding microscopy applications.
