Capture low light fluorescence and large fields of view.
Equipped with a Nikon digital SLR camera FX-format CMOS sensor and optimized for microscopy, the DS-Qi2 is an ultra-high quality 16.25 megapixel monochrome camera that features high pixel density, high sensitivity and low noise, making it an excellent choice for applications in quantitative fluorescence imaging.
Large format CMOS sensors
Nikon manufactures CMOS sensors and imaging technologies for professional D-SLR cameras, which are now optimized for microscopy.
Detects even faint fluorescent signals
7.3µm pixels, high quantum efficiency, and very low read noise allow the DS-Qi2 to even read faint fluorescent signals.
Reliable quantitative analysis made possible
With a linearity error of ±1%, the DS-Qi2 is a superb tool for measuring intensities in fluorescence samples, including time-based intensity measurement and ratiometric measurement.
Acquires dim fluorescent signals with ultra-low noise
2.2 electrons read noise, and this, coupled with a large full-well capacity, allows the acquisition of fluorescence images with very little noise and a very high dynamic range.
