The Cooke Corp. has unveiled the pco.edge camera system that offers complete high-fidelity scientific imaging. Based on a scientific CMOS image sensor, it delivers low noise, fast frame rates, a wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution and a large field of view, simultaneously and all in one image. The camera features low readout noise of 1.4 e rms. Applications include live-cell microscopy, particle imaging velocimetry, single-molecule detection, super-resolution microscopy, total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy/waveguides, spinning disk confocal microscopy, genome sequencing (second- and third-generation), Förster resonance energy transfer, fluorescence recovery after photobleaching, adaptive optics, fluorescence spectroscopy, bio- and chemiluminescence, high-content screening, x-ray tomography, ophthalmology, flow cytometry, spectral and hyperspectral imaging, and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy.

GLOSSARY
astronomy
The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
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.
fluorescence
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.
hyperspectral imaging
Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
ophthalmology
The branch of medicine involved in the study of the anatomy, functions, diseases and treatments of the eye.
photobleaching
A process that helps optical fibers recover from damage induced by radiation. When silica is irradiated, bonds break and attenuation increases. Light in the fiber assists in recombining the species released by the broken bonds, decreasing attenuation.
resolution
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
