LARNE, Northern Ireland, Dec. 30, 2012 — Driven by the Sony ICX674 and ICX694 chips, the Kingfisher V from Raptor Photonics Ltd. is a deep-cooled vacuum interline scientific CCD camera. The digital monochrome camera is available with 2.8- and 6-megapixel sensors.

The high quantum efficiency of >77% at 525 nm and >50% at 380 and 720 nm provides optimum photon collection. Full well capacity is 12,000 electrons, nonlinearity is <1%, and readout noise is <1.75 electrons. Spectral response is from 310 to 1100 nm.

Features include global shutter, thermoelectric cooling with water (Pentavac technology), low dark current, a large field of view, 4.54 × 4.54-μm pixel size, and a C-mount lens mount.

The camera measures 109 × 85 × 76.5 mm and weighs 553 g, without the lens.

Applications include adaptive optics, bio- and chemiluminescence, calcium signaling, fluorescence imaging, spectroscopy, flow cytometry, Förster resonance energy transfer, fluorescence recovery after photobleaching, total internal reflection fluorescence, genome sequencing, high-content screening, high-resolution fluorescence imaging, hyperspectral and live-cell imaging, particle imaging velocimetry, single-molecule detection and solar cell inspection.

GLOSSARY
adaptive optics
Optical components or assemblies whose performance is monitored and controlled so as to compensate for aberrations, static or dynamic perturbations such as thermal, mechanical and acoustical disturbances, or to adapt to changing conditions, needs or missions. The most familiar example is the "rubber mirror,'' whose surface shape, and thus reflective qualities, can be controlled by electromechanical means. See also active optics; phase conjugation.
bioluminescence
Heatless light emissions from living organisms caused by the combination of oxygen and pigments such as luciferin.
chemiluminescence
A chemical reaction involving the production of light. The reaction of ethylene with ozone is chemiluminescent.
flow cytometry
A method of measuring the characteristics of microscopic particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Particles may be stained with fluorescent dye and the fluorescence detected via laser illumination.
high-content screening
Also known as HCS, an analytical method designed to collect statistically relevant amounts of quantitative data on many parallel cell populations or processes within cells through the combination of microtiterplates, high-resolution imaging, automated microscopy, fluorescent or bright-field sensors and image analysis software.  
hyperspectral imaging
Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
