SURREY, British Columbia, Canada, Aug. 16, 2011 — For high-sensitivity low-light imaging, QImaging has released the Rolera Thunder electron-multiplying CCD (EMCCD) microscopy camera. Its quantitative capability with linear EM gain and high frame rates renders advanced imaging accessible to more researchers.
Designed for quantitative low-light fluorescence microscopy, the camera is suitable for life sciences applications including superresolution stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy imaging, photoactivated localization microscopy imaging, single-molecule fluorescence and fluorescence recovery after photobleaching, as well as physical science applications such as astronomy and the study of Bose-Einstein condensates.
The camera features a back-illuminated 16-µm-pixel, 512 × 512 EMCCD sensor for >90% peak quantum efficiency, read noise of <1e- and operation at >385 fps with binning. Because of its high sensitivity, very short exposure times are possible, enabling rapid data acquisition and greater temporal resolution. The ability to quantify research using the camera’s linearized EM gain and onboard EM calibration technology circumvents the aging process.
A FireWire interface enables customers to maximize their research with 16-bit digitization. The camera seamlessly integrates with customized high-end OEM systems and is backed by a two-year limited warranty.
