Andor Sona sensitive back-illuminated sCMOS camera series

Wednesday, 01 June, 2022 | Supplied by: Coherent Scientific Pty Ltd


Sona is Andor’s latest high-performance sCMOS camera series, specifically for life sciences imaging applications.

The Sona 4.2B-6 provides a balanced combination of sensitivity, speed and resolution for optimal imaging performance across many applications. The 4.2 MP format with 6.5 µm pixels is suited to the widely used 40x and 60x magnifications. The flagship model, the Sona 4.2B-11, is the company’s solution for sensitivity and field of view, offering a 32 mm field of view. Both models support SRRF-Stream real time super-resolution technology, while all Sona models feature the latest back-illuminated sCMOS technology with 95% quantum efficiency (QE).

With 95% QE and vacuum cooling down to -45°C, the series is designed to provide good sCMOS sensitivity, thus preserving living cells during extended measurement periods. It also allows capture of large fields of cells or whole embryos with clarity.

Sona is suitable for quantitative measurement. Linearity of >99.7% enables optimal measurement in applications such as FRET, ion signalling and gene expression analysis. The platform also has low fan vibration, meaning measurement precision should not be compromised in vibration sensitive set-ups such as super-resolution and electrophysiology.
