Ultrasensitive Zyla 4.2 Scientific CMOS camera

Share this on social media:

Andor Technology has launched the ultra-sensitive Zyla 4.2 Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera. Offering the highest quantum efficiency (QE) available from sCMOS technology, coupled with very low read noise and 100 fps frame rate, Zyla 4.2 is suitable for applications such as ion signalling microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, light sheet microscopy and TIRF.

The high -resolution 4.2-mMegapixel camera delivers 72 per cent QE, < 1 e-read noise, and 33,000:1 dynamic range. Moreover, the compact and low vibration design makes it suited to both research and OEM usage. Comprehensive on-head FPGA real-time data processing ensures high image quality and quantitative stability.

Thermoelectrically cooled to 0°C and utilising a very low noise fan, Zyla 4.2 also benefits from Andor’s Dark Noise Suppression (DNS) Technology, to yield a darkcurrent of 0.14 e-/pixel/second, maintaining low noise across a range of exposure conditions. Zyla is also available in a -10°C water cooled variant.
