Key Features Fast Sensor Readout Taking only 13.5 milliseconds per full frame readout, Marana-X can achieve a rapid 74 fps. Marana-X is ideal for the acquisition of large imaging data sets such as tomography and in-situ transient phenomena. Extended Dynamic Range Large pixel well-depth and an on-chip multi-amplifier design means the whole photometric range, from the noise floor up to the saturation limit, can be captured with one image. The wide dynamic range is complemented by enhanced on-head intelligence to deliver linearity > 99.7%, for unparalleled quantitative accuracy of measurement...

Application Focus Soft X-ray Water Window Tomography Soft X-ray microscopy in the water window (~285535 eV) enables the unique imaging of intact cellular samples in their near-native state to resolutions of only a few 10s of nm in detail. The excellent speed of the Marana-X combined with unparalleled quantum efficiency in the 285-535 eV energy range makes the Marana-X the ideal camera for water window tomography. This coupled with low read noise and lack of mechanical shutter enables Marana-X to collect high contrast data sets with minimal experimental downtime. Fogelqvist, E., Kördel, M.,...
