HAMAMATSU ORCA FAMILY OF INTERLINE CCD CAMERAS OVERVIEW

The ORCA line up of monochrome cameras meets a broad range of fluorescence and transmitted light applications for life sciences. All ORCA cameras are built on the ER-150 progressive scan interline CCD that offers high speed and high sensitivity. The ER-150 chip offers exceptional quantum efficiency compared to ICX 285 sensors in a 1344x1024 format with 6.45 µm pixels.

ORCA-R2 – Maximum Versatility

Features include:

  • 1.37 million pixel interline CCD with maximum QE over 70%
  • 16 full frames per second up to 64 fps with binning and subarray
  • 14MHz and 28 MHz readout modes (with 6 or 10 electron r.m.s. read noise) included for either high precision or high speed
  • 12-bit and 16-bit digitizers are included and software selectable
  • Air and water cooling (-40 °C absolute) capabilities are standard

This camera is suited for applications that require:

  • High resolution and short exposure times combined, e.g. live cell imaging
  • Choice of very low noise or very fast readout to suit applications
  • Choice of bit depth to suit data and precision needs, e.g. quantitative imaging
  • Long exposures with very low dark current and no vibration

ORCA-03G and ORCA-05G – Affordable price and low noise

Features include:

  • 1.37 million pixel interline CCD with maximum QE over 70%
  • 8.9 full frames per second up to 43 fps with binning and subarray
  • 12-bit and 14-bit digitizers are included and software selectable
  • 03G is cooled to -10°C absolute
  • Compact head size with single cable and no controller

These cameras are suited for applications or situations that require:

  • High resolution and short exposure times combined (03G), e.g. live cell imaging
  • Compact design
  • Both bright fluorescence and NIR-DIC
  • Fast frame rates and good precision
  • ORCA-03 includes peltier cooling for extended exposures
