Dual-Camera Adapter

Photonics Spectra

Andor Technology Ltd., Corporate HeadquartersRequest Info
 
Andor Technology plc has launched the TuCam adapter for simultaneous two-camera macro- and microscopic imaging. Suited to fast, concurrent detection of two different fluorophores in experiments such as colocalization Förster resonance energy transfer and ratiometric ion signaling, it is compatible with the company’s low-light imaging cameras, including iXon3 and Luca electron-multiplying CCDs, and with the Clara interline CCD and the Neo sCMOS model. Bypass mode and first surface mirror enable switching between cameras. The adapter can be configured for simultaneous imaging from two similar cameras, or as a switch between camera models with different capabilities. The robust design ensures good optical and mechanical stability, and ease of alignment via kinematic cassettes. The device is available in C- and CSUX-mount versions and offers a variety of beamsplitting optics.

GLOSSARY
C-mount
A standard lens interface initially made for 16mm movie cameras and now used primarily on closed-circuit television cameras. It is a 1-in.-diameter, 32-thread-per-inch interface with a flange-to-image plane distance of 0.69 in.
filter wheel
A device that holds a number of filters and allows the filter with the desired characteristics to be rotated into an optical aperture.
macroscopic
Sizable enough to be perceived by the unaided eye.
microscopic
Characteristic of an object so small in size or so fine in structure that it cannot be seen by the unaided eye. A microscopic object may be rendered visible when examined under a microscope.
