The Andor iXon Ultra EMCCD camera from Scitech is a back-illuminated imaging camera that delivers high speed performance while maintaining low noise, single photon sensitivity and quantitative stability.
Featuring the popular back-illuminated 512 x 512 frame transfer sensor, the iXon Ultra has a maximum readout rate of 17 MHz, pushing speed performance to an outstanding 56 fps.
The iXon Ultra offers deep vacuum cooling to -100°C, extremely low spurious noise, and Andor’s patented EM gain recalibration technology (EMCAL). Real time data acquisition is enabled by the Count Convert functionality in units of electrons or incident photons while OptAcquire facilitates one-click optimisation of this versatile camera to a variety of application conditions.
New features in the iXon Ultra back illuminated imaging EMCCD cameras include plug and play USB connectivity, lower noise conventional CCD mode and an additional Camera Link output, offering the unique ability to directly access data for ‘on the fly’ processing.
The iXon Ultra is suitable for speed challenged low-light applications including:
- Super-resolution microscopy (PALM, STORM)
- Whole genome sequencing
- Single molecule/photon detection
- Ion signalling (Calcium flux)
- Cell motility
- FRET/ FRAP
- Spinning Disk Confocal Microscopy
- TIRF Microscopy
- Fluorescence Correlation Microscopy (multi-beam)
