FOM - Focus on Microscopy

At this year’s Focus and Microscopy 2015 conference Hamamatsu will present at our booth several of our newest life science products.

  1. Mounted to a Leica microscope Hamamatsu will show the new version of our Orca Flash4.0 LT, which incorporates now a special W-view mode combination with our new double-view optics Gemini.
  2. We invite you to check the performance of our Orca Flash4.0 V2 mounted to a Zeiss microscope.
  3. Hamamatsu will introduce our newest EM-CCD camera, the ImagEM X2-1K.
  4. In addition to our life science cameras Hamamatsu will present its newest model of Spatial Light Modulators – the new High Resolution LCOS. It is designed for efficient Laser Beamshaping Applictions in Superresolution-/Lightsheet Microscopy and Optical Trapping.

ORCA-Flash4.0 LT

The ORCA-Flash4.0 LT makes it easy to be brilliant. With 2× the speed, 3× the field of view and up to 5× the signal to noise over even the best interline CCD cameras, the ORCA-Flash4.0 LT brings high end performance to every imaging project. From brightfield to fluorescence, from live cell to fixed tissue, from routine to ground-breaking, the ORCA-Flash4.0 LT is designed to be the new workhorse digital camera. The ORCA-Flash4.0 LT shines with the most experienced implementation of Gen II sCMOS technology, and realizes the long-awaited promise of luxury CCD performance at affordable CMOS price.

ORCA-Flash4.0 V2

A game changer from inception and a proven performer since its initial release, the ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 offers unrivaled flexibility across a wide range of imaging applications. Easily change from USB to Camera Link connectivity. Switch from a blazing fast scan to a virtually noiseless slow scan by a simple click in software. Use our Lightsheet Readout Mode™ for seamless integration with light sheet microscopy systems. Robust triggering allows the ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 to drive other devices or be driven by them. And then there’s the highest QE of any sCMOS camera on the market.

ImagEM X2-1K

The ImagEM X2-1K (C9100-24B) is an extremely versatile camera that quietly delivers 18.5 frames/s at full frame and high sensitivity (1024×1024 pixel). With very high signal to noise in near dark conditions and extremely low dark current, the ImagEM X2-1K enables quantitative ultra-low light imaging both for long integration times and at high speed. With EM gain off, the extremely deep full well capacity can extract information from the lowest contrast bright images. Additional new features allow for optimized camera triggering, on-board for EM gain protection, streamlined connectivity through IEEE1394b, improved overall signal to noise and increased non-EM dynamic range. Hamamatsu has taken the beloved 1024 × 1024 EM-CCD sensor and created a masterfully redesigned camera that delivers maximum speed and precision performance.
