Digital camera-manufacturer, QImaging, has launched a new microscopy camera, the Rolera EM-C2 EMCCD for industrial and life science applications. The camera is specifically designed to provide ultra-speed performance and sensitivity in low-light imaging applications such as Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching, ratiometric ion imaging, Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence microscopy and spinning-disc confocal imaging applications.
The Rolera EM-C2 EMCCD features an Easy-EM mode function that optimizes the camera’s settings at a single click. The EM Gain application improves the signal-to-noise ratio, allowing users to capture clear images even in low-light settings. Scientists no longer have to use the conventional cameras that require sliders to gauge the sensitivity. The camera’s pixel clock rate of 40 MHz offers faster frame rates.
The Rolera EM-C2 EMCCD delivers high sensitivity and low noise over a wide spectrum, which is normal during fluorescence experiments. A -50º C Peltier cooling reduces dark current for continuous exposures. The variable exposure time ranges from 200 µs to 17.9 min. The camera also features the QCapture Suite software, which can be installed easily.
The Associate Product Manager of QImaging, Rachit Mohindra, stated that the EM option automatically adjusts the camera to an optimum signal-to-noise level, allowing users to capture the best data for their experiments.
