What's New in the ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 Two Scan Speeds While the read noise at standard scan is only 1.9 electrons rms (1.3 electrons median), there are some experiments for which even lower noise is more important than raw speed. New in the ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 is an additional slow scan readout mode with read noise of just 1.5 electrons rms (0.9 electrons median). Both the USB and Camera Link configurations of the camera have this low noise capability. Lightsheet Readout ModeTM To enable the best speeds and synchronization for light sheet microscopy, the ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 configured with the...

Readout noise distribution Read noise: rms or median? RMS and median are both valid statistical models for evaluating the central tendencies of data distributions, such as pixel noise. With CCDs there are never any issues regarding which model to use o because the typical read noise for all pixels is very similar; thus rms and median are equivalent. With sCMOS, the structure of the sensor inherently has more pixel variation and the extreme low noise of the sensor makes variation more statistically significant. But when it comes to evaluating camera performance, the truly meaningful spec is...

High sensitivity means extreme versatility The ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 is changing the game of scientific imaging. For years, cooled CCDs have been the go-to technology for fluorescence applications such as GFP or multi-channel imaging that require high signal to noise, high contrast images. EM-CCDs have been scientists' choice for low-light, often high speed applications such as TIRF or spinning disk confocal. For lack of a better choice, the same technology has been adopted for localization microscopy. The ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 offers such a multitude of benefits that it not only easily accomplishes...

ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 Conduct your research ImageConductor connectivity TM Every ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 includes ImageConductor connectivity™ so that it’s enabled for both USB 3.0 (default) and high speed Camera Link. If your imaging tempo is 30 frames/s, then the default configuration with USB 3.0 is right for you. If you need something a little more lively… presto, just add a Camera Link board now or later to achieve 100 frames/s of full 4-megapixel images. Both 30 frames/s USB 3.0 100 frames/s Camera Link options deliver the same low noise, high quantum efficiency imaging for unprecedented...

Up to 40 min. of continuous full speed, full resolution acquisition*1 *1 This was tested with Dell T5500 (E5640 2.66GHz) + RAIDO (LSI MegaRAID SAS 9260-4i) and 4 pes SATA SSD drives (SAMSUNG MZ-7PC512) Windows7 64 bit Allegro or presto? You be the Conductor. When conducting imaging with a camera that has 4 194 304 pixels with 16-bit data depth, a single image is 8 megabytes. But capturing a single frame is child's play. What really matters is sustained, sequential image capture. Hamamatsu's ImageConductor gives you control over which speed works for you. In the default configuration, the...
