Photometrics Kinetix ultrafast 10 MP, 400 fps sCMOS camera

Sunday, 01 March, 2020 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd


The Photometrics Kinetix back-illuminated sCMOS camera combines 95% quantum efficiency with a low 1.2 e- read noise to deliver a sensitive sCMOS camera at over 400 fps. The camera delivers ultrafast speed and a large field of view with balanced pixel size. This makes it suitable for use in fluorescence microscopy, high content imaging, biochip, microarray and genomic applications.

Taking advantage of an 8-bit readout mode, the camera delivers a full frame with a 29.4 mm diagonal field of view. The optimised line time allows the speed to outperform typical sCMOS devices, according to the company, delivering over 4000 MP/s — an almost 10-fold improvement.

The 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.

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

By bringing the light in from the back of the sensor, photons land directly onto the light-receiving surface, maximising light collecting capability.

The product features pattern noise reduction technology and correlated noise reduction technology to ensure that it delivers clean, pattern-free images with minimal pixel defects, delivering improved image quality in low light conditions.
