Most notably, spinning disk confocal microscopy is aided enormously by EMCCD cameras, since that microscopy enables visualization of the biological process of interest at lower light exposure of the sample and at higher speed than possible with a normal CCD.
PHOTONIS' xSCELL Digital Scientific Camera is designed to address the combination of high-speed imaging, low light levels and low dark noise requirements, such as in fluorescence imaging, spinning disk confocal microscopy, high-throughput screening and gene sequencing.
