Andor's expertise in scientific performance optimization has been harnessed once again. Clara has been designed to deliver the highest sensitivity performance achievable from an interline CCD camera
Based around the popular ICX285 sensor from Sony®, the Clara interline CCD is ideally suited to high-resolution cell microscopy and OEM applications. Andor's proven UltraVac™ process, alongside close attention to thermal management, has resulted in deep air cooling to -55°C for elimination of darkcurrent, complementing a unique read noise of 2.4e- @ 1 MHz.
More dynamic events can be followed with outstanding quantitative stability via low noise 10 or 20 MHz readout modes, the data channeled through a trouble free USB 2.0 interface. Andor's iCam technology enables market-leading acquisition efficiency through live cell microscopy softwares. The compact, robust design and accessible SDK, renders Clara interline CCD camera ideally suited to OEM integration.
