Andor iXon Ultra 897 | Low-light EMCCD cameras

Simultaneously image and photostimulate hundreds of individual cells in 3D, with precise targeting of cells across large areas of the brain. Introducing the HoloStim-3D.

Andor iXon Ultra 897

The iXon Ultra platform takes the popular back-illuminated 512 x 512 frame transfer sensor and overclocks readout to 17 MHz, pushing speed performance to an outstanding 56 fps (full frame), whilst maintaining single photon sensitivity and quantitative stability throughout.

Benefits

  • Overclocked to 17 MHz readout for 56 fps full frame
  • NEW Optically Centered Crop Mode – Live Cell Super Resolution at 569fps
  • Single Photon Sensitive
  • EX2 Technology for wider QE response
  • TE Cooling to -100 °C
  • Fringe Suppression

Facilitated by a fundamental redesign, the iXon Ultra platform takes the popular back-illuminated 512 x 512 frame transfer sensor and overclocks readout to 17 MHz, pushing speed performance to an outstanding 56 fps (full frame), whilst maintaining quantitative stability throughout.

Ultimate Sensitivity is attained through deep thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C and industry-lowest clock induced charge noise. Additional unique features of the iXon Ultra 897 include USB 2.0 connectivity and direct raw data access for on the fly processing. EMCCD and conventional CCD readout modes provide heightened application flexibility, with a new ‘low and slow’ noise performance in CCD mode.

The significant speed boost offered in the iXon Ultra 897 facilitates a new level of temporal resolution to be attained, ideal for speed challenged low-light applications such as super-resolution microscopy, single molecule tracking, ion signalling, cell motility, single photon counting, lucky astronomy and adaptive optics. The extremely low noise of the iXon Ultra 897 coupled with the new overclocked speed performance will place this model at the forefront of consideration when it comes to upgrading the high end imaging performance of your laboratory.
