Gemini W-View Gemini is an image splitting optics device which provides one pair of dual wavelength images separated by a dichroic mirror onto a single camera. Simultaneous image acquisition of dual wavelength images allows you high speed ratio metric imaging and other multiple fluorescence applications. Exceptional performance from 400 nm to 800 nm is enabled by our proprietary lens system. When used with "imaging grade" filters, the system is optimized for low light imaging. The W-VIEW GEMINI is designed to take advantage of the wide field of view provided by Gen II sCMOS cameras such as the ORCA-Flash 4.0 LT. Up to 13mm X 6.4mm F.O.V. and resolution of up to 2000 pixels X 1000 pixels for each image.

CoolLED...Simply Better Control

coolledlogo CoolLED's innovation comes from recognizing that all the stains used in multi-band work can have their absorption bands divided into four separate groups across the spectrum due to the restricted bandwidth available. This has allowed the development of a patent-pending, wavelength-grouping concept which makes it possible to deliver more power in an efficient four channel system. The compact pE-4000 Light Source houses all the LEDs, their combining optics, thermal management and control electronics. A dual mode control pod gives manual control in either White or Advanced modes. Light is delivered to the microscope by either a single liquid light guide or fiber which then can be used in conjunction with the CoolLED pE-Universal Collimator which can accept a microscope adapter from CoolLEDs extensive range. In addition, the unit is compatible with most current software packages and has the highest near IR wavelength available on the market today!!

PCO Edge sCMOS Camera

pco edge The PCO Edge Unlike previous generations of CMOS and CCD based cameras, sCMOS is uniquely capable of simultaneously offering: extremely low noise, rapid frame rates, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency (QE), high resolution, and a large field of view. Camware is provided for camera control, image acquisition and archiving of images in various file formats (WindowsXP and later). A free software development kit (SDK) including a dynamic link library, for user customization, integration on PC platforms is available. Drivers for popular third party software packages are also available. Available options include monochrome & color versions; cooled versions include water cooling and deep cooling.

  • Extremely low noise down to 1.1 e's @ 33 fps under rolling shutter mode for higher signal to noise ratio
  • Fast frame rates up to 100 fps @ full resolution for observing dynamic events
  • Wide dynamic range(27,000:1) to observe both bright and dark information in the same image
  • High quantum efficiency (>54%) for low light imaging applications
  • High resolution (5.5 Mpixels) to provide more details in the subject
  • Large field of view to cover wider sample area
