Quick Links


The CoolSNAP HQ2 is a fast, high-resolution camera designed for quantitative fluorescence microscopy applications. This cooled CCD camera delivers wide dynamic range with very low noise at both 10 MHz and 20 MHz. Megapixel resolution and small pixel pitch allow imaging of fine detail. The pixels can also be easily binned to improve sensitivity. Advanced interline-transfer CCD technology offers high quantum efficiency, most notably in the near-infrared (NIR) portion of the spectrum.

All Photometrics cameras provide built-in PVCAM compatibility!
