CellCam Kikker 100MT

CellCam Kikker

The Kikker provides excellent image quality with a large field of view at an affordable price. The camera is thermoelectrically cooled giving low dark current and has ≈85% Quantum Efficiency and true 12-bit digitisation which can be optimised for low light and/or high dynamic range. This is the go-to camera for versatile imaging with 40X to 100X microscope objectives, but also includes an auxiliary high resolution mode for diffraction limited imaging with lower magnification objectives, or 4/3 inch format macro cameras lenses.

* the sensor is set up for the default acquisition mode to be a sensor-locked hardware 2×2 bin giving 11.7 MPixel, but this can be unlocked in software to give 46.8MPixels.

** Typical settings from 0.4 to 4 e- per ADU to suit light levels and dynamic range requirements
