Photometrics Evolve (Series)

• 95% Quantum Efficiency
• 10, 13 & 16 μm Pixel size options
• Ultra-high-speed readout

Product Description

The Evolve® is a high-resolution, back-illuminated EMCCD providing high sensitivity for the lowest light applications.

With proprietary Teledyne technology throughout, the Evolve provides a new standard in EMCCD performance and reliability. For single molecule imaging, TIRF microscopy, and more, achieve the best imaging performance when every photon counts

Superior Signal to Noise for Faint Signals

When you can count your photons on one hand, you need the lowest noise possible. Alongside back-illumination for maximum quantum efficiency, the Evolve series uses Electron Multiplication to achieve a read noise as low as 0.25e- without sacrificing frame rate.



Various Pixel Size Options To Match Your Optical System

Pixel size choice is a balance of resolution and sensitivity – larger pixel areas collect more photons. The Evolve range includes 13 and 16 μm pixel cameras to provide optimum sensitivity. However, resolution was previously limited for EMCCDs due to a lack of smaller pixel size options.

Now with sensor manufacture taking place in-house, Teledyne is able to offer a 10 μm pixel back-illuminated EMCCD, matching the required pixel size for 100x oil immersion microscope objectives.

Frame Rate Flexibility

Full-frame imaging rates of up to 61 fps can be sustained in high speed readout mode, with frame rates greater than 4,000fps available when imaging with regions of interest.
