Value and performance for fluorescence imaging

The XM10 camera line employs the industry standard Sony® ICX285 AL CCD providing superb sensitivity and linearity. There is no better choice for researchers balancing budget demands with the need to perform quantitative fluorescence imaging research.

Combined with the world-renowned Olympus UIS2 optics, the XM10’s 1.4 million pixels (6.45µm, square) yield images of amazing resolution and detail. Whether working with live or fixed tissue, the XM10’s efficiency yields excellent signal-to-noise ratios at up to 15 frames per second.

XM10 for monochrome brightfield imaging

An infrared (IR) cut filter is standard in the XM10. With a steep cut off at approximately 740nm, this filter prevents detection and acquisition of infrared wavelengths during brightfield imaging.

For customers wishing to capture longer wavelength images, as in IR-DIC electrophysiology applications, the XM10-IR is available without the IR cut filter, greatly enhancing the camera’s sensitivity at wavelengths beyond 740nm.
