CCD Camera for Low-Light Life Science Applications

The CoolSNAP MYO is a high resolution, high sensitivity camera for moderate to low-light life science applications. This unique cooled CCD provides 4.54µm pixel pitch, 14-bit digitization at 20MHz, enabling high spatial resolution and an optimized frame rate for time-lapse cell imaging. Its 2.8 Megapixels and a high Quantum Efficiency enables sensitive imaging with the option for binning for a higher dynamic range as well as increased signal-to-noise performance – all while providing an ideal pixel pitch for microscopy.
