QIClick™Cooled CCD Camera

The QIClick Cooled camera was designed to meet the requirements of multiple scientific imaging applications ranging from brightfield inspection to fixed cell fluorescence. The active cooling of 25C° below ambient, enables the QIClick Cooled to acquire long exposure fluorescent images without the presence of hot pixels inherent to non-cooled CCD cameras. Offered as both a monochrome and color CCD camera, the QIClick Cooled camera can be used for quantitative fluorescence measurements as well as producing brilliant color images.
