SPOT Imaging has released the RT sCMOS cooled camera with Sony’s Pregius technology to address the high imaging demands of life-science professionals.

It is said to be the only high-speed camera on the market that currently employs a cooled Sony Pregius CMOS Sensor. Deep cooling allows dim images to be seen without becoming obscured by dark current, while the global shutter ensures undistorted images of moving specimens. The camera is optimal for fluorescence microscopy, FISH, GFP imaging, immunofluorescence and 3D deconvolution applications.

Deep cooling of the image sensor to -20°C supports long exposure times. The Sony Pregius IMX250 CMOS image sensor offers almost three times the sensitivity of the current benchmark CCD camera using the Sony ICX694. It is back-illuminated and features enhanced Near-IR technology.

The superfast USB3 monochrome camera operates at 36 fps at full resolution and 70 fps with 2x2 binning. Its resolution capabilities are two and half times greater than that of the RT3 and work at 5 MP live. The product is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems.

Other applications for the camera include spinning disc confocal, FRAP, high-speed multicolour fluorescence, electrophysiology, calcium imaging, ion transport physiology, ratiometrics imaging and voltage-sensitive dyes.
