QImaging has recently launched its latest optiMOS Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera for fluorescence microscopy.
The camera is designed as an alternative to traditional CCD cameras; optiMOS captures fast cellular dynamic events across a larger field of view without compromising sensitivity.
Many cellular mechanisms occur on short time scales and emit very low luminescence signals when fluorescently labelled.
To sufficiently document these interactions, the imaging device must provide adequate spatial and temporal resolution, while maintaining very high sensitivity.
Featuring faster frame rates and lower noise, optiMOS was designed as a CCD alternative that combines speed with high resolution and increased sensitivity.
According to the company, the camera is ideal for cell biologists using live cell, multicolour fluorescence; biophysicists studying membrane dynamics and protein and lipid trafficking; as well as neuroscientists looking at ion transport such as electrophysiology, calcium imaging and ratiometric imaging.
