iXon3 860 - Lightning Speed & Ultra-Sensitivity

Designed for very rapid imaging of low light events, combining > 500 frames/sec with single photon detection capability and > 90% Quantum Efficiency.

Thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C minimizes EM-amplified darkcurrent, whereas Andor’s ‘overclocked’ vertical shift speeds minimize both clock induced charge noise and vertical smear during frame transfer.

The iXon3 860 Back-Illuminated EMCCD benefits from an advanced set of user–requested features, including OptAcquire, Count Convert, Spurious Noise Filters & Signal Averaging. RealGain™ provides quantitative EM gain calibration. Sub-millisecond biology is readily accessible through use of sub-array selection, pixel binning and Cropped Sensor Mode pushes frame rates to new extremes. The speed and sensitivity of the iXon3 860 Back-Illuminated EMCCD camera also renders it ideal for adaptive optics.
