"a very stable system with good acquisition software."Review date:
18 Jan 2010 | iXonEM+ 885 EMCCD Camera
With single photon sensitivity, great resolution, high ‘virtual phase’ QE, clean uniform backgrounds, stable baseline technology, exceptionally low darkcurrent, UltraVac™ hermetic vacuum and fast frame rates - all at an affordable price tag – the iXonEM+ 885 deserves serious consideration as a worthy addition to your laboratory.
A proud member of the iXonEM+ EMCCD range, the 885 benefits from the unique innovations and high-end performance specifications that have characterized this camera family as the industry’s leading high-performance EMCCD.
The megapixel sensor format and 8 x 8µm pixel size of the 885 presents an ideal combination of field of view and resolution, offering excellent Nyquist over-sampling for cell microscopy. When more light is available from the sample, the EMCCD gain can be completely switched off and the camera operated as a 'traditional' CCD camera. However if the camera is used in low-light conditions, the EMCCD gain can be applied to render it single photon sensitive, while maintaining a full resolution frame rate of 31 frames/sec.
