Hamamatsu Photonics UK Ltd.Request Info
Hamamatsu Photonics UK Ltd. has introduced the ImagEM 1K C9100-14 EM (electron-multiplying) CCD camera, which offers high-resolution, high-sensitivity and high-speed imaging. Because of its back-thinned 1024 x 1024 frame transfer EMCCD with peak quantum efficiency of >90%, it is suitable for use in applications where ordinary CCDs or scientific CMOS cameras are not. It can be operated as either an EMCCD or as a standard CCD camera. In both modes, multiple settings are available that have been optimized for various applications and for readout speeds of up to 11 MHz. This versatility makes it well-suited for use in research laboratories and for fluorescence microscopy, semiconductor and solar cell inspection, and pharmaceutical drug discovery.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
fluorescence microscopy
Observation of samples using excitation produced fluorescence. A sample is placed within the excitation laser and the plane of observation is scanned. Emitted photons from the sample are filtered by a long pass dichroic optic and are detected and recorded for digital image reproduction.
