Andor Technology plc has launched the TuCam, an 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, the Clara interline CCD and the Neo sCMOS model. Bypass mode and first surface
mirror enable switching between cameras. It 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 adapter is available in C- and CSUX-mount versions
and offers a variety of beamsplitting optics.
