The FS92 cooled CCD camera from Artemis-CCD (Norwich, England) features a 9.2 Mpixel sensor in a Type 1 3388 × 2712 pixel array for low-light imaging applications such as fluorescence and chemiluminescence imaging and optical spectroscopy. Typical read noise is 5 e-, and the sensor is Peltier-cooled to Î/-25°C below ambient. Monochrome or color sensors are available.

Low light cooled CCD camera in a compact body
Norwich, UK: Artemis CCD Limited, a leading manufacturer of cooled CCD cameras for low-light applications today launches the FS92 featuring 9.19 million effective pixels in a Type 1 3388 x 2712 pixel array. A combination of high resolution and high sensitivity increases significantly the application options for the scientific user and OEM customer. As with all members of the FS range of cameras a typical read noise of 5 electrons makes the FS92 a perfect choice for low light applications including fluorescence and chemi-luminescence imaging and with the asymmetric pixel binning function, a highly effective detector in optical spectroscopy.
As with previous Artemis CCD Cameras®, the FS92 is fully compatible with all software downloads available on www.artemisccd.com. This includes a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) together with LabVIEW drivers and a plugin for the open source image editor, ImageJ.
The FS92 is Peltier cooled to a delta of -25°C below ambient and is available with either a monochrome or colour sensor. By specifying the alternative rectangular body design for those particularly demanding applications, an additional -10°C cooling performance may be achieved.
Steve Chambers, Artemis CCDâs CEO said: âThe FS92 has been developed in answer to our customerâs requests for the highest resolution chips in the slim-line body style which is the hallmark of the FS range. This camera represents the pinnacle of achievable performance in such a compact package and is available for immediate delivery.â
Artemis CCD is a leading manufacturer of cooled low-light application cameras for the scientific and industrial sectors. Artemis CCDâs camera ranges are integrated into Raman spectroscopy equipment, microscopy, gel documentation and chemi-luminescent imaging systems and are successfully delivering results in many of the worldâs top life science companies and major research institutes.
Artemis CCD was founded in 2000 and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Digital Imaging plc headquartered in Cambridge, UK. The firm has an Operations and R&D facility based in Norwich, UK and a manufacturing base in a dedicated factory in Lisbon, Portugal.
