An ultra-low noise 2.8MP Sony ICX674 CCD, perfect for fluorescence.

Introducing the  Kingfisher CCD, driven by the new Sony ICX674 chip, offering 2.8MP resolution. The Kingfisher has 4.54?m x 4.54?m pixels enabling ultra sharp image resolution and QE of up to 77%. The extremely low dark current allows long exposure times, perfect for staring applications. 

The Kingfisher camera offers outstanding performance for low light applications such as fluorescence imaging, astronomy, Bio & Chemi-luminescence, calcium signaling, fluorescence imaging / spectroscopy, flow cytometry, FRET / FRAP / TIRF, genome sequencing, high content screening, high resolution fluorescence imaging, hyperspectral imaging, live cell imaging, single molecule detection and solar cell inspection.

The camera is fully compatible with the XCAP software from EPIX (Cameralink).  This high performance Image Analysis Software offers easy-to-use menus and dialogs and allows simple or complex imaging tasks to be effortlessly completed.

The Kingfisher camera features:

  • 1940 x 1460 CCD Sensor  - Enables high spatial resolution
  • Extremely low dark current - Allows long exposure times. 
  • Very low readout noise - Less than 7 electrons
