Over 40 years in the scientific camera industry

The original architects of scientific-grade EMCCDs.

The first to provide back-illuminated sCMOS cameras with near-perfect efficiency.

The maker of the Kinetix, the first and currently only camera able to:

  • Quantitatively image voltage changes in neurons across a huge field of view
  • Image entire model organs at sub-cellular resolution in a single image
  • Achieve sub-electron sensitivity across an entire ten megapixel sensor
  • Image across four modes optimized to deliver a range of specifications, including Speed, Sensitivity, Sub-Electron, and Dynamic Range

We continue to design and manufacture high-performance scientific cameras while delivering outstanding customer service. Here are some of the perks you get with Teledyne Photometrics:

Products and Features

We offer the latest in scientific CMOS, EMCCD, and CCD technologies. Our product range is matched to a wide range of microscopy applications, meeting your imaging needs and overcoming experimental or sample challenges. Here are some perks of imaging with a Teledyne Photometrics camera:

  • Our sensors are pattern-free, sensitive, and highly quantitative, which means no more patterns, lines, or artifacts getting in the way of your sample
  • Our Citadel chamber design provides industry-leading sensor protection, which means no more condensation
  • Exclusive Product Features that make imaging easier, more powerful, and more efficient

Sensitivity: Near-perfect 95% quantum efficiency combined with ultra-low read noise

Speed: Extreme high speeds across the whole sensor to capture dynamic events

Resolution: Large arrays with small pixel sizes for sub-cellular resolution

Field Of View: Easily image larger samples with 22 mm, 25 mm and 29 mm sensor sizes
