Cameras for Fluorescence Microscopy

Raptor offers a range of scientific cameras suitable for fluorescence microscopy. We recently compared four cameras each using different sensor technology, EMCCD, sCMOS and CCD under similar conditions to see the advantages of each.

Equipment & Conditions: 

We took a series of images on a Leica fluorescence microscope with different cameras looking at the same sample in similar condition using µManager for acquisition and ICY for image processing. We wanted to compare and contrast the images generated by the different cameras and adjusted the exposures to obtain the best images quality from each camera.
