CellCam Centro 200MR sCMOS Camera

• Mono camera
• Pixel Size 2.4µm x 2.4µm
• Sensor size – 13.2mm x 8.8mm

Product Description

A general purpose microscopy camera, ideal for brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescence, especially for high resolution at low magnifications. 

The Centro is an affordable all-rounder for fixed and live samples across a wide range of microscopy and macroscopy applications. A 20MPixel sensor opens up opportunities for sub-region imaging at higher frame rates for techniques such as stochastic super resolution (STORM) and dynamic time-lapse imaging, whilst still maintaining the ability to oversample to push diffraction limits at all magnifications.  The camera offers excellent QE, low read noise with the reassurance of an optimised fan-cooled design, with 8 and 12-bit digitisation and near infrared sensitivity.

* Typical settings from 0.4 to 4 e- per ADU to suit light levels and dynamic range requirements
