HiCAM FLUO is a high-speed camera for fluorescence applications. It records high resolution images at a frame rate of up to 2,000 fps in the most challenging low-light conditions by using a cooled image intensifier. Packed into a compact aluminum enclosure, it is easy to attach the HiCAM FLUO to any fluorescence microscope.
Fiber-optically coupled intensifier
HiCAM FLUO is a gated intensified high-speed camera. It has an integrated fiber-optically coupled image intensifier, which offers a unique combination of high speed imaging and increased light sensitivity down to single photon level. Because the HiCAM does not need high-intensity light sources, it is suitable for use in low-light level conditions like fluorescence imaging.
Cooled image intensifier
The fanless design of the camera minimizes vibrations to ensure sharp images. Very low noise levels are achieved by Peltier cooling the image intensifier. Noise levels are reduced by a factor of up to 100 times as compared to uncooled intensified cameras.
Up to 2,000 fps @ 1920 x 1080 pixels & global shutter
The HiCAM Fluo high speed fluorescence camera records full-resolution images up to 2,000 fps. To increase the frame rate, the camera can use a smaller part of the sensor to reduce the image resolution. By doing so, it can operate at even higher frame rates. The sensor in the HiCAM Fluo has a full resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The sensor in the HiCAM Fluo uses an electronic global shutter. This ensures that all pixels are read out at the same time to prevent rolling shutter effects. In combination with intensifier gating, exposure time can be reduced to 3 ns.
Applications of the HiCAM Fluo include:
High-speed fluorescence, bioluminescence and chemiluminescence detection for in-vivo imaging
Time-resolved imaging of fluids for microfluidic research
Flow visualization and velocity measurements using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
Time-resolved imaging and spectroscopy using ultra-short exposures
Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF)
Super-slow motion combustion research for the automotive industry
Time-resolved imaging in plasma physics research
Single-photon imaging for astronomy
