Zyla 4.2 Plus Scientific CMOS camera

Andor Technology (Andor), an Oxford Instruments company, has launched the Zyla 4.2 Plus Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera, featuring the latest generation QE-boosted sCMOS sensor technology, 99.8 per cent quantitative linearity and new application specific modes.

Offering a sCMOS QE profile maximising at 82 per cent, and ideally suited to a wide range of common fluorophores, the Zyla 4.2 Plus delivers a sustained 53fps at full resolution through a USB 3.0 interface. According to the company, new on-camera intelligence offers a significant linearity improvement, providing quantitative measurement accuracy across the full dynamic range.

The high resolution 4.2 megapixel camera delivers QE performance that is 10 per cent higher than the previous gold-standard sCMOS sensor, coupled with  less than 1e- read noise and 33,000:1 dynamic range in a light, compact, low vibration design, intended for both research and OEM usage.

The Zyla 4.2 Plus also includes application specific modes such as LightScan Plus, which adapts the rolling shutter scan mode to applications such as scanning light sheet microscopy and line scan confocal. FCS  mode offers a speed of 26,041 fps from a 2048 x 8 pixel region of interest, ideally matched to the temporal demands associated with fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.
