Photometrics Coolsnap K4 Microscope Camera

Cambridge Scientific ID: 20348 Category: Tag:


CoolSnap K4 Features: 


  • 20-MHz readout: High-speed, high-sensitivity image capture
  • 2048 x 2048 imaging array: Resolves fine detail
  • 7.4 x 7.4-ìm pixels: Ideally matched to optical microscope
  • Interline-transfer, progressive-scan CCD: Eliminates camera vibration and facilitates fast triggering
  • Flexible binning and readout: Increases light sensitivity while increasing the frame rate
  • 12-bit digitization: Quantifies bright and dim signals in the same image
  • Thermoelectric cooling: Long integration times for higher sensitivity
  • Enhanced quantum efficiency: Provides higher sensitivity than typical interline cameras
  • C-mount: Easily attaches to microscopes, standard lenses, or optical equipment
  • Acquisition software: Captures, analyzes, and saves high-resolution images
  • PCI interface: High-bandwidth, uninterrupted data transfer
  • PVCam, Circular buffers, Device sequencing: Supported by numerous third-party software packages, Real-time focus, Precise integration with shutters, filter wheels, etc. (Compatible with Windows XP/Vista 32, Mac OS X, and Linux (kernel versions 2.4 and 2.6.8))
