We provide many high-performance cameras enabling high-quality imaging which maintain a good balance of low readout noise, low dark current, and high quantum efficiency at the optimum level. Provided by our supplier Hamamatsu Photonics.

By pursuing the three elements required for high-quality imaging, they have obtained extensive knowledge of producing our unique and high specification cameras, from sensor development to circuit design.

The back-thinned type sensor adopted by Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. eliminates the photon absorption (loss) by electrodes and realizes a high quantum efficiency of 98 %. Light collection efficiency per pixel is also improved by the on-chip microlens embedded in the back-thinned type sensor.

EM-CCD cameras used for ultra-low light imaging features the photomultiplier mechanism. TDI cameras turn linear movement of the sample into an advantage by coordinating signal accumulation in the sensor with sample movement. These cameras are also well-suited for low-light scanning applications that are too dim to for a line scan sensor.

Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) sensors utilize a technology where each horizontal line is read by the on-chip column amplifier in parallel in order to lower the amplifier’s band and keep the readout noise low. To ensure lower readout noise for the cameras, the circuit must be designed in a way to optimize performance. CMOS cameras deliver extremely low readout noise at 0.8 electrons.

InGaAs cameras bridge the gap between NIR wavelengths in the 950-1700 nm range, where silicon detectors are no longer sensitive.

What's New?

We’ve recently refreshed our website, and we hope that you will find the changes to be a big improvement. We’ve worked hard to make it easier to navigate the site, and to find exactly what you need from among our vast and diverse range of products.

Missing e-commerce?

One thing that we’ve not carried over from the previous site at this time is the facility to order online for a select range of our products, which you may have been used to in the past. “Off-the-shelf” items represent a small part of our product range; most often a purchase requires a more in-depth discussion between our sales team and the customer to match the right product to the user’s application. For this reason we have focussed on making it as easy as possible to request a quotation from our sales team.

Please rest assured that we will get back to you with pricing promptly, and will work with you to make sure the products you buy are exactly what you need. Once you’re ready to order, our sales team will work through the process with you, to make it as seamless as possible.

Once you’ve selected all the items you’re interested in, by clicking “Add to Quote” on the product page, just click “View Quote Request List” or the icon in the top navigation bar, check your list, set quantities, complete your details and submit the form. Our sales team will respond by email, in a timely manner.

If you have any other questions in the meantime, please get in touch directly.
