Teledyne long-exposure camera benefits life sciences applications

Teledyne camera

Teledyne Photometrics has introduced the Retiga E9 camera that can capture exposures from 10s of microseconds to 10s of minutes, delivering detailed, high-resolution images without extraneous noise. 

With its stacked CMOS sensor technology developed by Sony, the E9’s square pixel array with 3.76µm pixels and high dynamic range (>80dB) combine to create a sensitive, versatile, and cost-effective low noise camera ready for integration or benchtop use.

With a combination of low readout noise, high quantum efficiency, small pixel size, and large full well capacity the Retiga E9 is an ideal solution for imaging low-light signals for the extended periods of time required in gel documentation, DNA and RNA sequencing, qPCR, fluorescence/phosphorescence imaging, and general microscopy applications. 

The 9-megapixel, 3k x 3k array matches the field of view of many scientific imaging instruments, microscopes, and other C-mount-based optical systems.

The Retiga E platform, using the Teledyne Photometrics Citadel Sensor Chamber, isolates the sensor from the environment and allows air cooling down to below -20°C. The platform is designed for easy device integration into instrumentation, with a compact form factor, USB 3.2 10Gbs data communication, and long camera lifetime.
