QImaging optiMOS™ Scientific CMOS Camera

November 7, 2013 6:47 pm | QImaging | Products

This new Scientific CMOS camera is optimized for fluorescence microscopy. optiMOS delivers 10x the time resolution of CCD cameras without trading off on resolution or sensitivity. An alternative to traditional CCD cameras, optiMOS, combines speed with high resolution and increased sensitivity. The affordable sCMOS solution, optiMOS brings the advantages of low noise and high speed imaging to a broader range of cell biology applications. optiMOS is ideally suited for cell biologists using live cell, multicolor fluorescence; biophysicists studying membrane dynamics and protein and lipid trafficking; as well as neuroscientists looking at ion transport such as electrophysiology, calcium imaging and ratiometric imaging.
