Flexibility of imaging applications

To achieve the best imaging conditions, you can adjust the K5 camera flexible parameters to meet your sample needs:

  • Image dynamic cellular events with up to 40 fps imaging
  • Resolve detailed structures thanks to high 4.2 MP resolution
  • Reduce exposure times and phototoxic effects with high 80% quantum efficiency.

 
 

Comparison slider:

Many commonplace CCD cameras have relatively low QE and high noise, which can reduce signal-to-noise and make it difficult to image structures of interest.

This image with DAPI-Nuclei (blue), Alexa488-Actin (green), MitoRed-mitochondria (red), and Alexa647-WGA (magenta) show the improvements that the Scientific CMOS technology in the K5 can give over CCD cameras.

The K5 and THUNDER Imager 3D Assay enables clear identification of Alpha (GFP-green) and Beta (mCardinal-red) cells within a developing zebrafish pancreas. Imaged in the blue (Hoechst), green (GFP), and red (mCardinal) channels, this 150-image z-stack was completed with all channels within a minute.
