The Cascade:128+ can collect more than 500 full frames of true 16-bit data per second. This cooled EMCCD camera operates an e2v CCD60 device at 12 MHz, effectively maximizing frame rates while preserving optimal readout performance. An unprecedented combination of speed and sensitivity makes the Cascade:128+ a perfect choice for neuroscience applications and single-molecule fluorescence.

All Photometrics cameras provide built-in PVCAM compatibility!
