Advanced scientific imaging solution using new CCD technology
Atik Cameras, a specialist designer and manufacturer of scientific and industrial imaging solutions, has launched the first in its advanced imaging solutions, investing in new charged coupled device (CCD) technology.
The TE-77 paves the way for an exciting new series of advanced-performance scientific imaging cameras, capable of remarkable sensitivity.
This impressive CCD sensor boasts large square pixels of 24 µm², over a 12.3 mm² sensor area. Coupled with reliable cooling delta of -60°C, this camera achieves incredibly low read noise, enabling detection of the faintest signals. It is perfect for the most demanding applications such as chemiluminescence, fluorescence, spectroscopy, microscopy and bioluminescence. The design and engineering of the TE-77 complements this advanced sensor from Teledyne e2v perfectly.
What sets Atik Cameras apart is the collaborative customisation service offered with each solution. The TE-77 can be supplied with a wide range of bespoke options including the choice to add a 45mm, bi-stable high-speed scientific shutter, capable of 20-millisecond opening times. The case can be adapted to suit specific requirements or supplied as a simple PCB board set solution. Atik provides a comprehensive software development kit, complete with expert integration assistance from the in-house engineering team. In addition, all production takes place in Atik’s ISO-9001 accredited European manufacturing facilities.
Atik Cameras director Dr Panos Kapetanopoulos commented: “The TE-77 heralds an exciting new chapter for Atik Cameras, as the company builds on its extensive scientific imaging expertise to develop a highly advanced camera series, suitable for the most challenging of applications.”
