Photon detection unit

C13796

null

The photon detection unit C13796 is a single photon counting unit that is designed for counting low light emission without special set-up. All users need to prepare the sample and a personal computer (PC) only. The USB interface built-in the C13796 allows simple plug & play set-up.
Six optional modular units (sold separately) are available. The users can select the best one meeting with the purpose/application. When combined with the optional modular units, the C13796 is ideal for various measurements.
