Evolve® 10 – Maximum Sensitivity EMCCD Camera
The Evolve® 10 is a high-resolution, back-illuminated EMCCD from Teledyne Imaging providing high sensitivity for the lowest light applications such as single molecule imaging, TIRF microscopy and more.
With proprietary Teledyne technology throughout, the Evolve® 10 EMCCD camera provides a new standard in EMCCD performance and reliability. With features including quantum efficiency >95%, 1MP active array size, sensor area of 10.2mm x 10.2mm, 14.48mm field of view and a fast-mode frame rate of 30 fps.
Alongside back-illumination for maximum quantum efficiency, the Evolve® 10 uses Electron Multiplication to achieve a read noise of 0.26e- without sacrificing frame rate.
Pixel size choice is a balance of resolution and sensitivity – larger pixel areas collect more photons. The Evolve® 10 camera range includes 13 and 16 μm pixel cameras to provide optimum sensitivity. However, resolution was previously limited for EMCCDs due to a lack of smaller pixel size options.
Now with sensor manufacture taking place in-house, Teledyne can offer a 10 μm pixel back-illuminated EMCCD, matching the required pixel size for 100x oil immersion microscope objectives
