Fast megapixel EMCCD cameras with single photon sensitivity released

Scitech announces the new Andor
iXon Ultra 888 back-illuminated EMCCD cameras offering single photon
sensitivity across a large field of view at 26 fps.

Representing a massive
performance boost for the largest available EMCCD sensor, as well as the first
USB 3.0 enabled EMCCD camera, the new Andor iXon Ultra 888 features a 1024 x
1024 sensor format and 13 μm pixel size with its resolving power, field of view
and unparalleled speed offering a highly versatile EMCCD camera for demanding

The new EMCCD camera has been
re-engineered to facilitate a 3x acceleration of the pixel readout speed to an
unprecedented 30MHz, while maintaining quantitative stability, and propelling
the full frame performance to video rate.

The iXon Ultra 888 is designed
to be the most flexible EMCCD on the market offering ease of use, and optimisable
for a variety of application requirements in a single click via the OptAcquire
feature. The signal can be quantitatively calibrated in units of electrons or
photons, either in real time or post-processing.

The Andor iXon Ultra 888 EMCCD
cameras find application in single molecule detection, super-resolution
microscopy (PALM, STORM), TIRF microscopy, spinning disk confocal microscopy, vesicle
trafficking, ion signalling, cell motility, luminescence, FRET/FRAP, single
photon counting, and voltage sensitive dyes.
