Ideal for the Following Applications

The EM-CCD camera performs excellently, especially in the following applications:

  • Real-time imaging under dim fluorescent light
  • Fluorescent live cell imaging with reduced intensity excitation light
  • Observation of protein interaction within a cell
  • Measurement of ion concentration within a cell
  • Real-time confocal imaging
  • Single molecule imaging using a total internal reflection fluorescent (TIRF) microscope
  • Observation of in vivo microcirculatory blood cells using a fluorescent biomicroscope
  • Bioluminescence imaging of gene expression

The following manufacturers are recommended for EM-CCD cameras that can be operated with Olympus cellSens software:

  • Hamamatsu Photonics
  • Andor
  • Photometrics
  • QImaging
