Photometrics, a division of Roper Scientific Inc., has released its Turbo 1394 CoolSnap series cameras. The 12- or 14-bit CCD cameras are engineered for high-speed fluorescence microscopy applications. The four models in the series — the CoolSnap HQ2, CoolSnapES2, CoolSnapEZ and CoolSnapcf2 — deliver more than 7 fps at full resolution when switching parameters such as exposure time and region of interest between frames, and up to 11 fps when parameters remain constant. The FireWire cameras can rapidly switch exposure times, which facilitates high-speed emission ratio imaging, and can provide longer integration times for luminescence imaging.
