You know Hamamatsu. You know us for our high quality optical sensors, including our PMTs, photodiodes and CCDs. But did you know that Hamamatsu also makes OEM cameras? For imaging with X-rays to near IR, Hamamatsu OEM cameras implement cutting edge scientific CMOS (sCMOS), time delayed integration–CCDs (TDI-CCDs) as well as standard and completely custom CCDs and CMOS detectors. We excel at extracting the best performance from any image sensor.
Designed for targeted, high performance imaging with ease of connectivity, low power consumption, readily implementable form factors and scalable feature sets, Hamamatsu board cameras provide quality and reliability tailored to your budget.
The ORCA-Flash4.0 V3 and the ORCA-Flash4.0 LT are technological breakthroughs delivering uncompromising imaging performance on every axis: speed, quality, signal to noise, field of view, triggering repertoires and ease of implementation with surprising affordability.
In this best-of-both-worlds product, specialized Hamamatsu TDI CCD sensors are optimized by Hamamatsu camera engineers offering a unique, powerful and fully customizable option for high speed, low light applications.
How can you eliminate the guesswork of choosing a camera without installing a single new piece of hardware? Utilizing the most accurate noise models for image detectors, our Camera Simulation Engine (CSE) enables powerful and predictive virtual demos. By generating simulated images and analysis that demonstrate the effects of different technologies, operational modes and computational algorithms on your data, our CSE can eliminate months of hardware testing.
How can you be confident your system is stable and robust? Hamamatsu hardware quality is renowned, but our software engineers also deliver. Our DCAM-SDK provides an easy to implement, stable and fully supported bridge to integrate our cameras into your instruments. This precision toolkit supports all Hamamatsu cameras and features including an advanced repertoire of triggering modes and high speed data acquisition.
How will you maintain your market edge? Your customers expect your products to evolve. They must be faster, better, smaller and competitively priced. By sharing our long-term visions we can design cameras, from moderately tailored to fully customized, that meet your market needs three to five years down the road.
What is a camera? A sensor with some basic electronics around it? Plug it in and it detects light, provides a picture and measures some relative intensities. It’s just a camera. Except it’s not... You know that in a precision instrument, the camera is the heart of the device because it delivers the information that answers your question. At Hamamatsu, we never risk thinking of your camera as “just a camera.”
Images provided by Dr. Manasa Gudheti at Bruker, in collaboration with Dr. Scott Cameron (UC Davis), Dr. Hamed Arami and Dr. Marc Kanow (University of Washington).
Both images were collected with a Bruker Vutara 350 single molecule 3D super-resolution microscope equipped with a Hamamatsu ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 sCMOS camera. By rapidly capturing many short exposure (5ms) images and applying specialized imaging paradigms, the Bruker system is able to break the optical resolution barrier to allow identification of single molecules (Figure 1, TOM20 outer mitochondrial protein in red, tubulin in green) and to see with super-resolution quality within a 3µm z-stack (Figure 2).
Understanding the application and the information that must be acquired from the image elevates the process of choosing a camera from a transaction to a relationship. From life science to semiconductor, our camera OEM team brings the application expertise to engage.
Advanced imaging systems are a symphony of moving parts: calibration, illumination, focus, sample movement and prep as well as data output, analysis and storage. We can help you conduct the ensemble.
Even before instrument v1 is out the door, the next generation project is on the drawing board. How can you succeed with v2 and still satisfy cost, performance and delivery targets? We can help your products evolve.
