Customer Stories

Dynamics of Complex Fluids

Live Cell Imaging
Dr. Alexandros Fragkopoulos Max Planck Institute

“Using the Iris 9 Scientific CMOS [sCMOS] camera, we are able to record videos of cells in low-light conditions with high enough resolution to identify individual cells, and with high enough speed to resolve their full range of motion with the camera’s large field of view.”
