The highly innovative iXon Ultra 888 is the world’s fastest Megapixel, Back-illuminated EMCCD camera, offering exceptional frame rates and single photon sensitivity across a large field of view. Building on a rich history of first to market innovation, the ‘supercharged’ iXon Ultra 888, represents a massive performance boost for the largest available EMCCD sensor, as well as the first USB3 enabled EMCCD camera.
30 MHz readout delivering 26 fps at 1024 x 1024
> 2.6x larger Field of View than ‘897’ model
Optically Centered Crop Mode – Live Cell Super Resolution at 697fps
Single Photon Sensitive
EX2 Technology for wider QE response
TE Cooling to -95°C
The iXon Ultra 888 has been fundamentally re-engineered to facilitate 3x overclocking of the pixel readout speed to an unprecedented 30 MHz, whilst maintaining quantitative stability, accelerating the full frame rate performance to video rate. Furthermore, Andor’s unique ‘Crop Mode’ can be employed to further boost frame rates from a user defined sub-region, for example pushing a 512 x 512 sub-array to 93 fps and a 128 x 128 area to 697 fps.
With a 1024 x 1024 sensor format and 13 µm pixel size, the resolving power, field of view and unparalleled speed of the iXon Ultra 888 render it the most attractive and versatile EMCCD option for demanding applications such as single molecule detection, super-resolution microscopy, live cell imaging and high time resolution astronomy.
Single Photon Sensitive & > 95% QE - Optimal SNR in light starved applications such as single molecule detection and quantum physics.
