BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Sept. 18, 2014 — Andor Technology offers a new feature set for its Zyla 4.2 scientific CMOS camera that optimizes it for light sheet and selective plane illumination microscopy.
LightSheet Plus allows the user to synchronize the scanning of the illumination beam to a defined scan-row height on the sensor. Image quality is improved since the scan-row height can act as a slit detector, rejecting scattered light, improving contrast and the signal-to-noise ratio.
The user can maximize signal and confocality concurrently, as well as independently adjust scan-row height (slit width), scan speed (number of lines per millisecond) and exposure time.
