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.

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.”
Light Sheet and High Content Imaging
“Having the Iris 15’s high sensitivity, small pixels, and large field of view addresses a number of key experimental considerations for our study of development, including the ability to acquire overlapping images from different imaging angles, which is key for multi-view SPIM.”
Light Sheet Microscopy
“The camera is ideal for our OpenSPIM system due to the sensitivity and the large field of view.”
