Photometrics Kinetix ultrafast, 10.2 MP, 500 fps sCMOS camera

Sunday, 01 August, 2021 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd

The 10.2 MP back-illuminated Kinetix sCMOS camera from Teledyne Photometrics delivers fast speed and large field of view with balanced pixel size and 95% quantum efficiency. This makes it suitable for use in fluorescence microscopy, high-content imaging, biochip, microarray and genomic applications.

When imaging at high speed, sensitivity becomes key. This is why the Kinetix camera delivers a sub-electron mode with 0.7 e- read noise, 498 fps and 29.4 mm diagonal field of view, claimed to make it the most versatile low-light imaging camera ever made. The optimised line time allows the speed to outperform typical sCMOS devices, according to the company, delivering over 5000 MP/s — over a 10-fold improvement.

The camera’s 29.4 mm2 sensor is designed to increase throughput, maximise the amount of data captured in a single frame and take full advantage of microscopes with larger fields of view. At 29.4 mm diagonal, the 10.2 MP Kinetix sensor has a 2.4x larger imaging area than typical sCMOS cameras, the company says, allowing the user to speed up data acquisition.

The camera achieves 95% quantum efficiency. By bringing the light in from the back of the sensor, photons land directly onto the light-receiving surface, maximising light-collecting capability. The combination of this 95% quantum efficiency with a sub-electron low 0.7 e- read noise is claimed to deliver the most sensitive sCMOS camera available.

The Kinetix camera features 6.5 x 6.5 µm pixels, the accepted standard for most live cell applications using 40x and 60x magnification. This pixel size provides detailed images across the imaging plane and is suitable for a broad range of microscope objectives. It also features pattern noise reduction technology and correlated noise reduction technology so that it delivers clean, pattern-free images with minimal pixel defects, delivering improved image quality in low-light conditions.
