    Teledyne Photometrics Kinetix22 Scientific CMOS (sCMOS)

    The back-illuminated Kinetix22 Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera delivers high speed imaging with an optimized field of view for most modern microscopes, the most balanced pixel size and near perfect 95% quantum efficiency.

    • 22 mm Field Of View
    • 5.76 Megapixel
    • 2400 x 2400 6.5 μm Pixels
    • 498 Frames Per Second
    • 95% Quantum Efficiency
    • 0.7 e- Read Noise


    Key Features

    Ultimate Flexibility

    The Kinetix22 features four modes, allowing users to prioritize different camera specs, optimise imaging, and avoid compromise.

    The 8 bit Speed mode offers 498 fps across the full frame, 12 bit Sensitivity mode offers low 1.2 e- read noise while operating at ~90 fps, 16 bit Dynamic range has large full well capacity for varied signal levels in the sample, and 16 bit Sub-Electron mode offers EMCCD like sensitivity with 0.7 e- read noise.

    Extreme Speed

    The Kinetix22 delivers a tremendous 498 frames per second (fps), full frame across the entire 22 mm diagonal field of view. This speed significantly outperforms typical sCMOS devices while featuring a higher megapixel sensor.

    The optimized line time results in a data rate of almost 3000 megapixels/second, around 7x greater than typical sCMOS devices.

    Maximizing Signal Collection

    The Kinetix22 back-illuminated camera achieves a near-perfect 95% quantum efficiency.

    By bringing the light in from the back of the sensor, photons land directly onto the light receiving surface, maximizing light collecting capability. This allows for the weakest signals to be displayed as high quality image, even if your sample typically only emits a handful of photons.

    Minimizing Noise

    The Kinetix22 includes Sub-Electron mode, which has read noise levels around 0.7 e-.  In this mode, multiple measurements of the pixel value are taken, providing reduced noise from the camera. In addition, Sub-Electron mode uses a high sensitivity gain, so low signal levels provide great image contrast. With the low camera read noise in other modes, the Kinetix family represents the most versatile cameras on the market.

    High Resolution

    The Kinetix22 features 6.5 µm x 6.5 µm pixels, the accepted standard for most live cell applications using 40x and 60x magnification.

    This pixel size provides highly detailed images across the imaging plane and is most suitable for the broadest range of microscope objectives.

    Superior Background Quality

    The Kinetix22 features Pattern Noise Reduction Technology and Correlated Noise Reduction Technology to ensure that it delivers clean, pattern-free images with minimal pixel defects, delivering improved image quality in low light conditions.

    Pre-Owned Products

    Upon receipt of the pre-owned product(s), the customer has one week to evaluate the product to ensure it meets their expectations. If for some reason the customer decides to return the product, they may do so at any point during those seven (7) days for a full refund. No restocking fee will be assessed, however, the customer is responsible for the return shipping costs. Full credit will be issued upon receipt and inspection of the item(s) to ensure equipment was returned in the same condition it was initially shipped out in.

    Important Information

    All exchanges and returns require the completion of a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) form. Once completed, please return the merchandise immediately as the RMA number is only active for ten (10) days from the date of issuance.

    Charges associated with returning items are the responsibility of the customer unless the item(s) arrived defective, damaged, or incorrect.

    Spectra Services highly recommends that return packages be insured for full value and packaged securely to prevent shipping damage.
