Dual Camera Image Splitter

The TwinCam allows light to be distributed into two unrestricted images on different cameras, on the basis of wavelength, polarization or focal depth.

  • 2 cameras on 1 microscope port
  • Engineered for super resolution quality
  • Large sensor (CMOS) format

Key Features

Simultaneous Acquisition

The TwinCam allows for two cameras to occupy one microscope port, imaging the same sample simultaneously with light being distributed to both. The TwinCam comes with enhanced rigidity for all camera sizes, improving multi-camera equipment arrangements.

Optical Splitting

The switching speed of a traditional manual or electronic filter changer would limit the temporal resolution.  Instead, the TwinCam uses a unique rotatable mirror cradle – giving adjustable spatial separation – to ensure excellent image registration, allowing users to split based on wavelength.

Ease of Use

With intuitive and independent x/y controls for simple alignment, and C-mount coupling (with optional T or F mount) to microscope or camera lens, the TwinCam is easy to set up and install for new or established imaging systems.  In addition, all components are specially coated, resulting in a spectral range from 425 nm to 875 nm.

Adjustable Field of View

The TwinCam features custom designed optics, offereing optimized image quality on camera sensors up to 18 mm diagonal as standard, with larger field of view options available. TwinCam input has a fully adjustable rectangular aperture, allowing for the use of cropped sensor imaging mode on both detectors.

Interchangeable Components

The TwinCam features a single, rapidly interchangeable filter cube that can be easily swapped by the user for different filters and beam splitters.  These exchangeable filter cubes use standard 25 mm diameter filters and polarizers, and come with industry standard filters/dichroics, with the option for  1.3x and 1.7x output magnifications.  Larger filters and dichroics are available for larger sensor format cameras.
