pco.panda 26 sCMOS Camera

The ultra-compact pco.panda 26 scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera provides high resolution of 5120 x 5120 pixels. It is available in monochrome and color sensor options, making it ideal for various scientific applications. Featuring 2.5 x 2.5 µm pixel size, the pco.panda 26 is an excellent fit for optical systems such as microscopes, even with low magnification.

The true charge domain global shutter in the pco.panda 26 sCMOS camera allows for low readout noise and dark current. The USB 3.1 connection includes the power supply eliminating the need for an external unit and allowing for fast data transfer. Due to its ultra-compact housing, the pco.panda 26 can be easily integrated into an optical setup and used in a wide range of scientific as well as industrial applications.
