Falcon Blue2

1 MP Scientific EMCCD with Fused Silica window - from 180nm to 1100nm

The Raptor Photonics digital FALCON BLUE EMCCD camera, model FA285B-CL, combines high sensitivity, speed and high resolution. It uses a peltier cooled Texas Instruments' 1MegaPixel Frame Transfer Impactron device which provides QE up to 65%. It has a Fused Silica window for enhanced transmission down to 180nm.

It uses a 16 bit A/D converter and offers a standard CameraLink output.

The Falcon camera offers outstanding performance for low light applications such as fluorescence imaging, astronomy, electrophoresis, X-ray and hyperspectral imaging.

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

FALCON is also fully compatible with the Micro-Manager software. uManager provides a universal, flexible and free software platform for automated microscopy.  Combined with ImageJ, mManager provides a full featured microscope management and image processing package, with quality and ease of use standards equal to commercial software.

The FALCON EM285 camera features:

  • 1004 x 1002 EMCCD sensor - Enables optimum image resolution in low light imaging applications
  • B/W EMCCD technology - Enables high sensitivity imaging with up to 1000x on-chip gain
