Photometrics CoolSNAP HQ Microscope Monochrome Camera

Cambridge Scientific ID: 14743 Category: Tag:


Includes Computer loaded w/ software

The Photometrics CoolSNAP HQ Monochrome camera is a fast, high-resolution digital camera system designed for low-light scientific and industrial applications. This cooled CCD camera system provides 12-bit digitization at both 10 MHz and 20 MHz. The fine pitch of the pixels, 6.45 x 6.45 microns, is ideally matched to the resolution of optical microscopes. Megapixel resolution and small pixels allow imagingof very fine detail, yet the pixels can be easily binned to improve sensitivity. New interline CCD technology provides high quantum efficiency, most notably in the near-infrared (NIR) portion of the spectrum.
