Andor has available the iXonEM+, a dedicated, compact, truly high-end platform, designed to get the best from electron multiplying CCD (EMCCD) technology.

The iXonEM+ DU-888 is a Mega-Pixel back illuminated EMCCD camera and has single photon detection capability without an image intensifier, combined with greater than 90% QE of a back-illuminated sensor.

Containing a 1024 x 1024 frame transfer CCD sensor from E2V Technologies, it enables charge to be multiplied on the sensor before it is read out, while using the full QE performance of the CCD sensor. The absolute EMCCD gain of the camera can be varied linearly from unity up to a thousand times directly through the software, via a true quantitative EM gain scale.

Andor claims to be the first to offer this technology as a complete, software-controlled system for scientific digital imaging applications.

The DU-888 is a combination of field of view, resolution and ultra-sensitivity and is suitable for low-light imaging applications such as live cell imaging, astronomy, luminescence or microtitre plate reading.
