Andor Technology iXon Life 888 EMCCD *NEW* Microscope Camera

Cambridge Scientific ID #: 16888

Andor’s new iXon Life EMCCD (Electron Multiplying CCD) platform is available exclusively for fluorescence microscopy applications and is engineered to deliver single photon sensitivity with absolutely unparalleled price/performance. The ideal detector to drive superlative performance from confocal spinning disk technology. Whilst affording superb confocality and low rates of phototoxicity, spinning disk experiments are inherently photon starved, by virtue of the photon rejection implicit to optical sectioning. The superior sensitivity of the iXon Life detector brings these low light images to life.
