The QuantEM:512SC is the only scientific camera in the world that offers electron-multiplying (EM) gain with true quantitative stability across 16 bits at 10-MHz, 5-MHz, and 1.25-MHz operation speeds. A linearized and quantitative EM gain slider provides a much more intuitive, easily quantifiable EMCCD camera, while a self-calibrating EM gain feature ensures that the camera delivers the proper amounts of user-specified EM gain and remains quantitative over time. Stabilized background (bias stability) enabled by intelligent FPGA design allows a constant background with no “drift” during streaming, time lapse, etc.

All Photometrics cameras provide built-in PVCAM compatibility!
