Andor Launches iXon3 High Performance EMCCD Platform
27 Oct 2010The newly launched iXon3 EMCCD platform from Andor represents the next generation of cameras within the marketing-leading iXon platform.
The iXon3 EMCCD camera range offers an advanced feature set, the highlight of which is OptAcquire ™. This allows users to ‘single click’ optimize an array of camera acquisition parameters to offer best performance under a wide range of application conditions. The OptAcquire function makes the iXon X3 range the easiest cameras to use, whilst allowing complete flexibility for the user.
The new iXon3 range also offers Count Convert functionality, allowing real time data acquisition in units of electrons or incident photons. Additional new features include Spurious Noise Filters, a Cropped Sensor Mode to significantly boost frame rates, improved Photon Counting capabilities and real time Data Averaging. Reflecting the exceptional quality record of the iXon platform, the iXon3 now also carries a standard 7 year warranty on Andor’s UltraVacTM vacuum head.
Dr Colin Coates, Imaging Product Manager within Andor Technology, said; "Andor’s award winning EMCCD solutions have become the technology of choice for leading researchers worldwide and the iXon platform has evolved to become the gold standard in ultra-sensitive imaging. As in the past, the heightened performance and new features we are offering have been developed as a direct response of listening to our customers. Some have asked us to offer ways to make it simpler to optimize performance for a wide range of application scenarios. OptAcquire™ uniquely achieves just that with the click of a button, without having to sacrifice the leading performance versatility of the camera.”
