Unlike any CCD or CMOS camera to come before, Andor's 5.5 megapixel sCMOS cameras are unique in their ability to combine ultra-low noise, extremely rapid frame rates, wide dynamic range, large field of view and high-resolution. The Andor sCMOS portfolio ensures a viable technical and commercial solution to all research and OEM application and design requirements.
Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) is a breakthrough technology that offers an advanced set of performance features that render it ideal to high fidelity, quantitative scientific measurement. The 5.5 megapixel sensor offers a large field of view and high resolution, without compromising read noise, dynamic range or frame rate.
True Global Exposure - Essential for Biologists
Neo and Zyla sCMOS cameras uniquely offer both Rolling and Global Exposure modes (also known as ‘Rolling Shutter’ and ‘Global Shutter’ ). Achieve faster 3D / 4D microscopy, no distortion of moving samples and no dead time or photon waste with True Global Exposure
Rolling and Global (Snapshot) shutter
Maximum exposure and readout flexibility across all applications. Snapshot for 'interline CCD mode' freeze frame capture of fast moving/changing events.
Down to 1 e- read noise
Offers lower detection limit than any CCD.
Zyla offers '10-tap' Camera Link for maximum sustained frame rates. Burst to 4GB on-head memory on Neo.
5.5 megapixel sensor format and 6.5 μm pixels
Delivers extremely sharp resolution over a 22 mm diagonal field of view; ideal for cell microscopy and astronomy.
Maximum well depth and lowest noise simultaneously, affording extended dynamic range of up to 30,000:1.
Neo offers vacuum cooling to -40 0C for lowest possible noise. Zyla offers 0 °C cooling in up to 35 °C ambient.
Extensive FPGA on-head data processing
Essential to ensure best image quality and quantitative fidelity from sCMOS technology.
FPGA generated timestamp with 25ns accuracy.
Dynamic Baseline Clamp
Essential to ensure quantitative accuracy across the image area and between successive images of a kinetic series.
Spurious Noise Filter
Real time FPGA filter that identifies and compensates for spurious high noise pixels.
Data flow monitor
Data flow monitor.
Market leading exposure switching with minimal overheads.
Comprehensive trigger modes and I/O
Communication and synchronization within intricate experimental set-ups.
Cameralink interface permits high bandwidth data spooling to PC, allowing fast continuous kinetic series.
The new pco.edge is a breakthrough in scientific imaging cameras, due to its distinctive ability to simultaneously deliver extremely low noise, fast frame rates, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution and large field of view - all in one image.extreme low readout noise of 1.1 e- med
