QImaging Launches New Complete, Live Cell Imaging Solution

The package addresses live cell fluorescence imaging requirements with combined EMCCD and sCMOS camera solution.

QImaging™ today launched a new, all-in-one camera package that supports demanding live cell fluorescence imaging requirements. The Live Cell Imaging Package provides researchers with the sensitivity of EMCCD and the versatility of sCMOS camera technologies by combining QImaging’s Rolera™ Thunder EMCCD and optiMOS™ sCMOScameras. Now, researchers can address their unique imaging needs for a broader, more diverse set of scientific applications.
 
Modern cell biology can require an array of optical imaging methods to answer each scientific question.  Unfortunately, many digital imaging solutions force researchers to compromise on one or more imaging parameters such as having to trade sensitivity for frame rates or image resolution. Meeting these complex imaging parameters requires investment in varying technologies, and can be cost prohibitive.
 
The Live Cell Imaging Package addresses these physical constraints by combining two diverse technologies, enabling customers to seamlessly alternate between two cameras for optimized imaging support. The Package includes:
 
•       Rolera Thunder for low light capabilities with >90% quantum efficiency, large pixels and <1e- read noise using EMCCD technology
•       optiMOS for live cell imaging from 100 frames per second (fps) at full resolution to 1,630 fps in a sub-region
•       Easy, fast delivery and set up
 
The Rolera Thunder EMCCD camera is ideal for super resolution microscopy such as STORM and PALM as well as single molecule fluorescence, TIRF and FRAP applications.
 
More suited for routine fluorescence microscopy, the optiMOS sCMOS camera is ideal for cell biologists using live cell, multicolor fluorescence; biophysicists studying membrane dynamics and protein and lipid trafficking; as well as neuroscientists looking at ion transport such as electrophysiology, calcium imaging and ratiometric imaging.
