Iris 9 Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera is designed to deliver extremely high resolution images for live cell imaging applications.
Iris 9 delivers a 9 Megapixel sensor with a 17.8 mm field of view ensuring it can maximize amount of data in a single frame.
- 73% Quantum Efficiency
- 4.25 µm x 4.25 µm Pixel Area
- 9 Megapixel
Resolution and Pixel Size
The small, 4.25 µm pixels provide highly detailed images across the imaging plane, which allows for the highest resolution when using lower magnification objectives.
The low noise and high quantum efficiency across a wide range of wavelengths produces higher quality images with lower exposure times than conventional CCD cameras.
Programmable Scan Mode provides increased control over the rolling shutter exposure and read-out functionality of CMOS sensors by providing access to the sensor timing settings to allow optimization around applications that require control over the line time.
Superior Background Quality
The Iris 9 features Pattern Noise Reduction Technology and Correlated Noise Reduction Technology to ensure that it delivers clean, pattern-free images with minimal pixel defects, delivering improved image quality in low light conditions.
Compact Form Factor
The Iris 9 is a compact 76 x 76 x 88 mm with optimized cooling for the size, ideal for integration into new or existing configurations.

“We tested the Iris 15 and found its large detector size and rectangular sensor ideal for our applications.”
“The Iris 15 [Scientific CMOS camera] gives us the field of view, resolution and sensitivity to use calcium imaging to study interactions between large populations of cells with single-cell resolution on our Mesolens microscope.”
Light Sheet Microscopy
“The Iris 15 camera has both a large chip and a small pixel size so we can optimize the numerical aperture of our lenses. The 4.25 µm pixel size on the Iris 15 allows us to use more of the 0.28NA at 4× than other cameras without zooming.”
