The new Rolera-MGi digital camera combines the sensitivity of EMCCD technology and the simplicity of FireWire to provide an ideal solution for ultra-low-light dynamic fluorescence imaging applications
QImaging, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital cameras for scientific, machine vision, and OEM applications, has announced the release of the Rolera-MGi.
This addition to the popular Rolera product line sets a new performance standard as the industry's first camera to unite electron-multiplying CCD (EMCCD) technology and FireWire connectivity for ultra-low-light dynamic fluorescence imaging applications.
The innovative camera represents yet another robust QImaging solution for the biomedical and industrial marketplaces.
The Rolera-MGi incorporates a back-illuminated, 512x512-pixel EMCCD from e2v Technologies in order to deliver high-sensitivity imaging for spinning-disk confocal microscopy applications.
The new camera can also be utilized to acquire high-resolution still images for voltage potentials, dynamic ratio imaging (eg, pH and low-concentration flux), fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (Frap), and live-cell fluorescent protein imaging.
The IEEE 1394 FireWire interface used by the Rolera-MGi allows fast, easy installation via a single-cable connection between camera and computer.
Furthermore, every Rolera-MGi camera ships with software that enables real-time image preview and capture.
In addition, the support provided by QImaging's extensive partner network is second to none.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, QImaging designs, manufactures, and markets high-performance digital FireWire cameras for life sciences, machine vision, and OEM applications.
Tens of thousands of customers worldwide use QImaging cameras to perform quantitative image analysis and acquire high-resolution images for publication.
QImaging has formed numerous alliances with third-party software companies and system integrators to deliver comprehensive imaging solutions and application-specific software for a broad range of demanding bioscience and industrial applications.
All QImaging cameras are assembled in a state-of-the-art Class 1000 clean room and built under stringent quality processes.
QImaging is a registered ISO 9001:2000 company.
