High Performance, Two Camera Imaging Adapter

Andor’s TuCam is a new generation two-camera adapter for macro or microscopic imaging applications. Available in C- or CSUX-mount, TuCam features include large aperture, exceptional transmission, very low distortion and high precision alignment using kinematic cassettes.

TuCam can be configured for simultaneous imaging from two similar cameras or as a switch between camera models with different imaging capabilities.

A full range of beam splitting optics are available with custom-designed kinematic cassettes for precision alignment. These include wavelength and polarization splitters of the highest quality as well as a first surface mirror for switching between cameras.

A variety of camera tubes & lenses is available to provide magnifications of 1.0x, 1.2x, 1.5x and 2.0x in each arm of the adapter. A filter wheel can also be integrated at the input of TuCam to enable pre-filtering of the desired emission band.
