With the pco.panda 26 sCMOS camera you get both, the high resolution and mono/color sensor option needed for a multitude of microscopy applications. These include, inter alia, high-content screening, digital pathology and more.
There are many details that make the pco.panda 26 sCMOS camera outstanding. Its small 2.5 x 2.5 µm² pixels are an excellent fit to use the resolution capacity in optical systems such as microscopes even with low magnification.
Thanks to the pco.panda 26's true charge domain global shutter, you can achieve a remarkably low readout noise and dark current.
The housing design and interface provide easy integration. All pco.panda cameras have ultra-compact dimensions. The lack of needing an external power supply allows power and fast data transfer through one single USB 3.1 cable.
NOW, pco.panda 26 also available with double shutter functionality (for PIV, Particle Imaging Velocimetry).
