With an emphasis on optical performance, stability, usability, and flexibility Cairn are proud to offer a broad range of multichannel emission and detection products. These devices enable single or multi camera systems to image simultaneously (or fast-sequentially) at multiple wavelength or other differentiated state.

Further to this we offer a wide range of third-party CCD, EMCCD and (s)CMOS fluorescence imaging cameras along with our own turnkey photomultiplier-based photometry system for realtime calcium, voltage, and other intracellular ion measurements. These pages cover our most popular products, but if you can’t find exactly what you need then please don’t hesitate to contact us at sales@cairn-research.co.uk / tech@cairn-research.co.uk.
