The very best for single-molecule imaging.
Application Area: Fluorescence Microscopy
"We've recently purchased an EMCCD from Andor for our super-resolution fluorescence microscope. The camera works really well for single-molecule imaging applications. I am escpecially happy about the camera since we received an huge discount."

Reputable company, good quality product, communicative
Application Area:Hyperspectral Raman Imaging
"The product was delivered on time, we were able to set it up and interface with the LabView SDK with moderate effort. Aftersales service was performed as promised, someone from Andor trained us and Andor staff have been responsive to our inquiries."

"The iXon EMCCD is easy to integrate with any microscope control software. Furthermore, it is easy to install even for inexperienced users."
Facilitated by a fundamental redesign, the NEW iXon Ultra platform takes the popular back-illuminated 512 x 512 frame transfer sensor and overclocks readout to 17 MHz, pushing speed performance to an outstanding 56 fps (full frame), whilst maintaining quantitative stability throughout.
The status of ‘Ultimate Sensitivity’ is also preserved in this model, offering thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C and industry-lowest clock induced charge noise. Additional unique features of the iXon Ultra include USB connectivity and direct raw data access for on the fly processing. EMCCD and conventional CCD readout modes provide heightened application flexibility, with a new ‘low and slow’ noise performance in CCD mode.
