TuCam and Optosplit II
16 July 2012
Andor Technology has launched its multi-wavelength imaging portfolio. The portfolio comprises of the TuCam, a two camera adapter for simultaneous imaging with maximised field of view, as well as the Optosplit II, a dual emission splitter that divides an image into two separate spatially equivalent components that can be displayed side by side on a single camera sensor.
Perfectly suited to fast, concurrent detection of two different fluorophores in experiments such as co-localisation FRET or ratiometric ion signalling, TuCam and Optosplit II are compatible with Andor’s complete range of low light imaging cameras, including iXon and Luca EMCCDs, Clara interline CCD and the Neo and Zyla sCMOS. A range of simultaneous multi-channel acquisition and complementary analysis software options are also available. TuCam can be converted into a high performance camera switching device, facilitating fast switching between two different acquisition technologies, for example.
The robust design of TuCam ensures superior optical and mechanical stability and ease of alignment. Available as C- or CSUX-mount versions and with a wide range of high quality wavelength or polarisation filter sets, TuCam also features high quality achromatic lenses, excellent transmission, very low distortion and excellent registration between camera channels. A unique 22mm aperture certifies compatibility with large format sensors for wide field of view imaging, as offered by the Neo and Zyla sCMOS cameras.
