Andor Technology Sona 4.2B-6 back-illuminated sCMOS camera

Saturday, 01 February, 2020 | Supplied by: Coherent Scientific Pty Ltd


Andor Technology has announced the launch of Sona 4.2B-6 — the latest model in the ultrasensitive back-illuminated Sona microscopy camera series. The Sona 4.2B-6 provides a balanced combination of sensitivity, speed and resolution, making it suited to the needs of challenging microscopy applications.

The camera features a 4.2 MP sensor format with a 6.5 µm pixel size. This format is suitable for obtaining maximum resolution from the commonly used 60x and 40x objective lens magnifications. It also complements the existing Sona 4.2B-11 model, with a larger, 32 mm field of view for imaging large sample area.

The Sona 4.2B-6 shares many of the key features that have made the existing Sona models effective, including high-sensitivity sensors with 95% quantum efficiency and permanent vacuum-sealed sensor chambers with cooling down to -45°C. The Sona series offers high sCMOS sensitivity, meaning signal to noise can be optimised under reduced illumination conditions, thus preserving the biology of living cells during extended measurement periods.

Andor Technology is an Oxford Instruments company and supplier of scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions.
