pco.edge 4.2 LT USB

pco.edge 4.2 LT USB sCMOS Camera

The pco.edge 4.2 LT scientific camera features a scientific CMOS (sCMOS) sensor to achieve crisp images and precise measurements. With 2048 x 2048 pixel high resolution and 6.5 µm pixel size, this sCMOS camera is most suitable for users who require highest quantum efficiency, best 16-bit dynamic range, and extremely low readout noise.

The pco.edge 4.2 LT sCMOS camera includes an innovative sensor that is stabilized at 10° C allowing for 10 s exposure times. Designed with forced air cooling, the pco.edge 4.2 LT offers a viable solution with an excellent price-to-performance ratio. Furthermore, this all-purpose camera is well-established in the scientific community, especially for fluorescence microscopy applications.
