Riveal Contrast System

riveal The Riveal Contrast system is a unique microscope system that allows live cells to be observed in real time with unmatched resolution and contrast without the need for exogenous staining compounds. No chemicals mean more active, robust cells! Happy cells!!

Driven by powerful image capture and analysis software this technique provides structural information in a context not possible with current brightfield or fluorescence techniques.

  • Ideal for live cell imaging
  • Reduced photo-toxicity for extended observation times
  • Full color high resolution images with Optical resolution down to 100nm
  • Ideal for use in conjunction with fluorescence techniques

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
