ORCA-Fusion Digital CMOS camera



The ORCA-Fusion, built from the sensor up, balances the complex nuances of camera features to provide beautiful images and robust data at all lights levels, but especially in tough low-light conditions. The exceptionally low and highly uniform read noise of the ORCA-Fusion means that when the sample emits even just a handful of photons, either by default or by experimental design, they are not lost in the noise, but detected and reliably quantified. After all, when you want to hear a whisper it’s best to be in a quiet place.
