Photometrics® Evolve™ 512 Delta EMCCD Scientific Camera Wins 2013 Laboratory Equipment Readers’ Choice Award

July 1, 2013

Tucson, AZPhotometrics announced that its Evolve 512 Delta EMCCD camera, the industry’s fastest, most sensitive camera for super-resolution imaging, won a Laboratory Equipment Readers’ Choice Award in the Optics, Cameras & Image Analyzers category. Award entries were evaluated and voted on by a panel of Laboratory Equipment readers selected by the magazine’s editors.

“The Evolve 512 Delta pushes the boundaries of EMCCD camera technology, allowing researchers to conduct successful super-resolution techniques,” said Rachit Mohindra, Photometrics product manager. “It is a great honor to have Laboratory Equipment’s readership recognize our achievements with this product.”

The 5th annual award celebrates “excellence in product design and performance for the tools and materials used by scientists and engineers in research laboratories.” Winners will be published in the August 2013 issue.

The Evolve 512 Delta possesses the industry’s fastest frame rates and highest sensitivity, enabling researchers to double the data acquisition rate, reducing the time it takes to obtain high quality super-resolution images. Equipped with a sensor running at 20MHz that captures images at 67.5 frames per second and the lowest read noise (<1e- using EM gain) available for a high-speed EMCCD camera, the Evolve 512 Delta makes super-resolution imaging much more productive and efficient. It was specifically designed for the most demanding life science applications including super-resolution, single molecule fluorescence, live cell spinning disk confocal, FCS and TIRF microscopy.
