CMOS Camera for Fluorescence Microscopy

Click Image To Enlarge +


The optiMOS camera for fluorescence microscopy, as a CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) device, presents an alternative to cameras that rely on traditional CCD (charge-coupled device) technology. With a frame rate 10 times faster than the typical CCD and less than 2e− of electronic noise, optiMOS is designed to capture fast cellular dynamic events without compromising sensitivity. In addition, as a 2.1-megapixel device, optiMOS can achieve a field of view 45% percent larger than a standard 1.4-megapixel fluorescence CCD camera. With such capabilities, optiMOS can be used to capture fleeting cellular events such as membrane dynamics, protein and lipid trafficking, and ion transport.
