DNA sequencers automatically decode base sequences of DNA, which holds genetic information of living organisms. For various research applications and in the field of cancer treatment in particular, it is critical to analyze genetic information quickly yet exhaustively. In such aspects, DNA sequencers are the major contributor for the development of medicines and drug discoveries.
One of the methods for decoding base sequences is to fluorescently label each of the four nucleotides (A, C, G, and T) by detecting extremely weak light (fluorescence) emitted from the base sequences. We offer a lineup of high-sensitivity image sensors and cameras including DNA sequencers that are optimal for detecting extremely weak light.
The S13360 series consists of MPPCs for precision measurement. The MPPCs inherit the superb low afterpulse characteristics of previous products and further provide lower crosstalk and lower dark count. They are suitable for precision measurement, such as DNA sequencing, that requires low noise characteristics.
The C13365 series consists of optical measurement modules capable of detecting low level light.
The S10140 and S10141 series (-01) are back-thinned FFT-CCD area image sensors developed for low-light-level detection.
The C11440-52U30 is a compact and highly sensitive board level camera with the latest scientific CMOS sensor. We can also customize the product to best suit your needs.
The C10000-A01 is a board camera enabling you to capture a wide range of images of at higher speed and higher sensitivity. This is achieved by synchronizing the object motion with CCD charge transfer. This board camera is used for applications requiring high-speed detection of extremely weak light, such as analyzers and imaging devices.
These CMOS cameras feature high sensitivity and low noise levels, making them optimal for observing extremely weak light. We can also customize the product to best suit your needs.
The C10000-801 is a camera enabling you to capture a wide range of images at higher speed and higher sensitivity. This is achieved by synchronizing the object motion with CCD charge transfer. This camera is used for applications requiring high-speed detection of extremely weak light, such as analyzers and imaging devices.
