Hamamatsu Releases High-Sensitivity Digital Camera for Low-Light Imaging Applications

Hamamatsu has launched a new high-sensitivity digital camera for low-light imaging applications requiring high frame rates. The ORCA-Flash2.8 is ideal for real-time confocal microscopy, TIRF microscopy, FISH, FRET, and life science imaging applications.

ORCA-Flash2.8 camera

The digital camera is designed based on advanced scientific CMOS image sensor and offers low noise, high speed, high sensitivity and high resolution. The camera has a FL-280 scientific CMOS image sensor that delivers high resolution with a 3.63x3.63 µm pixel size. The ORCA-Flash2.8 also has additional features, namely analog gain, real-time corrections and external trigger functions.

The FL-280 sensor has more than 60% QE of peak sensitivity at a wavelength range of 450 to 500 nm, and a wavelength sensitivity ranging from UV to visible. The image sensor has a minimal readout noise of three electrons r.m.s, while the design of the sensor maintains the readout noise as minimum at fast readout speeds. In addition, the sensor exhibits a minimal dark current. Due to this aspect, the senor needs to be cooled to +5°C.
