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.

High Content Imaging
“We like that the Iris 15 has such a big chip. The camera gives us so much information, allowing us to collect tons of data.”
Light Sheet Microscopy
“The Iris 9 is demonstrating high sensitivity to the low light levels present during rapid in vivo imaging and also the timing required to ensure the accurate image synchronization. We have imaged hearts for over an hour without losing timing lock on the imaging, demonstrating the performance of the camera”
Dynamics of Complex Fluids
“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.”
