EMCCD Technology providing single photon sensitivity … The Andor iXon
Andor TechnologyTM leads in scientific imaging by developing and manufacturing products to support its global customer base. Andor has developed imaging and spectroscopy products that allow you to perform experiments that were previously impossible without EMCCD (Electron Multiplying CCD) technology. With the iXon, Andor have produced a dedicated, compact, truly high-end platform, designed specifically to get the absolute best from EMCCD sensors.

Unparalleled customer benefits include:

Technology Excellence: The iXon camera range combines Andor’s pioneering EMCCD technology with front illuminated or back illuminated CCD technology, to detect extremely weak photon levels. The iXon is having a profound influence on the field of low-light dynamic cellular microscopy, combining photon collection efficiencies of up to 95% QE with the ability to virtually eliminate the read noise detection limit. The system offers multiple readout speeds up to 35MHz, 14- and 16-bit digitization, and benefits fromnegligible dark current with unequaled thermoelectric cooling down to –90˚C. All Metal Hermetic Vacuum Seal: Andor’s iXon range also employs an exclusive hard metal hermetic vacuum seal, which not only allows for more effective TE cooling, but also affords complete protection of the sensor from condensates or moisture, an essential feature for any high-end CCD. This innovation also means only one window in front of the sensor (as opposed to two), increasing photon throughput. Wide Range of Imaging Applications: The iXon is the ideal camera range for a wide variety of ultra low-light, dynamic imaging experiments such as Single Molecule Detection, Live Cell Multi-Dimensional Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy, Intracellular Ion Signaling, and Cell Motility. Using Andor’s EMCCD technology enables:
