BELFAST, Northern Ireland, April 6, 2009 – Andor Technology plc has launched the Clara low-light imaging interline CCD camera. Built around the 1.3-megapixel ICX285 sensor from Sony, it is engineered to deliver high sensitivity, high resolution and good dynamic range performance.
The proprietary UltraVac vacuum process and attention to thermal management have resulted in deep air cooling to -45 °C for elimination of dark current. The camera also produces low read noise of 3e- rms at 1 MHz. Dynamic events can be followed with good quantitative stability via low-noise 10- or 20-MHz readout modes, with the data channeled through a USB 2.0 interface.
The company’s iCam technology and comprehensive input/output functionality enable high acquisition efficiency via live-cell microscopy software, and an accurate hardware- generated time stamp ensures temporal precision. The compact, robust design and accessible software development kit facilitate OEM integration.
