Product Description

High Speed Back Illuminated sCMOS

The back-illuminated Kinetix Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera delivers the fastest speed and the largest field of view with the most balanced pixel size and near perfect 95% quantum efficiency.

Extreme Speed

Taking advantage of an 8-bit readout mode, the Kinetix sCMOS delivers a tremendous 500 frames per second (fps), full frame with a 29.4 mm diagonal field of view.

The optimized line time allows the speed to significantly outperform typical sCMOS devices, delivering over 5000 megapixels/second – over a 10-fold improvement.

Large Field of View

The 29.4 mm square sensor of the Kinetix is designed to increase throughput, maximize the amount of data captured in a single frame and take full advantage of new, larger field of view microscopes.

At 29.4 mm diagonal, the Kinetix sensor has a 2.4x larger imaging area than typical sCMOS cameras allowing the user to significantly speed up data acquisition.

High Sensitivity

The Kinetix back-illuminated sCMOS camera achieves a near-perfect 95% quantum efficiency.

By bringing the light in from the back of the sensor, photons land directly onto the light receiving surface, maximizing light collecting capability.  The Kinetix combines 95% quantum efficiency with a low 1.2 e- read noise to deliver the most sensitive sCMOS camera at 500 frames per second.
