ORCA-Fusion & ORCA-Fusion BT sCMOS cameras, in a nutshell
The ORCA-Fusion & ORCA-Fusion BT, 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 ORCA-Fusion and ORCA-Fusion BT cameras are the pinnacle of scientific CMOS (sCMOS) performance. The specifications are without compromise: ultra-low readout noise, CCD-like uniformity, fast frame rates, and high QE. The ORCA-Fusion BT even uses back-thinned sensor technology to achieve nearly perfect sensitivity (95%) at peak.
But the beauty of the ORCA-Fusion & ORCA-Fusion BT is what this combination of exceptional photon detection and collection can do for you. See the dimmest whisper of signal, acquire visually stunning, high SNR images from the fewest photons, capture previously unresolved temporal events and perform computational methods with confidence. The ORCA-Fusion & ORCA-Fusion BT are the cameras that make the difficult experiments easy and previously impossible experiments possible.
ORCA-Fusion & ORCA-Fusion BT sCMOS cameras, in more details
With the introduction of the ORCA-Fusion family, users are now able to stream 5 megapixel images to their computers 89 frames per second. The computer recommendations for this high data rate can be met by using the guidelines listed in the PC Recommendations document accessible under Downloads > Manuals & User Guides.
