Neo sCMOS ultrasensitive camera now with 4 week delivery

Press Release


26th August 2011

Belfast, Northern Ireland, 26th August 2011 – Andor Technology plc (Andor), a world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announced that the delivery time on a new Neo sCMOS ultrasensitive imaging camera is now reduced to only 4 weeks.

Neo sCMOS is unique in its ability to simultaneously offer ultra-low noise, high resolution, large field of view, rapid frame rates and wide dynamic range, overcoming the performance trade-offs associated with traditional scientific CCD detectors.

Neo achieves an unprecedented 1 electron read noise while reading out 5.5 megapixels at 30 frames/sec. Neo also exclusively offers deep vacuum cooling down to -40 °C, critical to maintain the low noise advantage and a minimal pixel blemish specification across all exposure conditions.

Dr Colin Coates, Product Manager within Andor Technology, said: "Since its launch in November 2010, this innovative new technology has generated a surge of interest, resulting in an extensive order book. However, Andor operations have been working diligently at ramping up production capacity on this new line, and this shortened delivery period is a direct result. The combined attributes of high performance, accessible price and short lead time positions sCMOS technology as a natural successor to interline CCD as the new gold standard workhorse solution across a range of scientific imaging applications, particularly for live cell microscopy."
