Great image quality as always. USB 3 is super convenient. Pricey but worth it.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Fluorescence microscopy

"USB 3 is very easy to use. SDK is also very well designed. My LabView code for the previous generation of iXon was easily converted to be used with the new camera. Image quality is great as before."

The highly innovative iXon Ultra 888 is the world’s fastest Megapixel, Back-illuminated EMCCD camera, offering exceptional frame rates and single photon sensitivity across a large field of view.

Building on a rich history of first to market innovation, the ‘supercharged’ iXon Ultra 888, represents a massive performance boost for the largest available EMCCD sensor, as well as the first USB3 enabled EMCCD camera.

The iXon Ultra 888 has been fundamentally re-engineered to facilitate 3x overclocking of the pixel readout speed to an unprecedented 30 MHz, whilst maintaining quantitative stability, accelerating the full frame rate performance to video rate. Furthermore, Andor’s unique ‘Crop Mode’ can be employed to further boost frame rates from a user defined sub-region, for example pushing a 512 x 512 sub-array to 93 fps and a 128 x 128 area to 697 fps.

With a 1024 x 1024 sensor format and 13 µm pixel size, the resolving power, field of view and unparalleled speed of the iXon Ultra 888 render it the most attractive and versatile EMCCD option for demanding applications such as single molecule detection, super-resolution microscopy, live cell imaging and high time resolution astronomy.


Features:

  • 30 MHz readout delivering 26 fps at 1024 x 1024
  • > 2.6x larger Field of View than ‘897’ model
  • Optically Centered Crop Mode – Live Cell Super Resolution at 697fps
  • Single Photon Sensitive
  • EX2 Technology for wider QE response
  • TE Cooling to -95°C
